How does cannabis impact driving among older, long-term users?

Cannabis can impact driving ability among older, long-term users of the drug, according to a small Canadian study. The researchers recruited 31 participants aged 65-79 years old, who had smoked cannabis for an average of 40 years, and monitored their driving on a driving simulator before, 30 minutes after, and 180 minutes after smoking their preferred cannabis product. The researchers looked for signs of impaired driving – weaving, speed changes and reaction time – and say the participants were more likely to weave and drive slower 30 minutes after smoking, but not 180 minutes. Despite this, the researchers say the participants rated their own ability to drive as impaired 180 minutes after smoking.
