3 marijuana crimes remain common despite legalization

California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996. A full two decades later, in 2016, its recreational use was legalized. Things have certainly evolved in the time since, and though cannabis is now legal, some law enforcement has continued to crack down on infractions related to the drug. If you want to responsibly enjoy marijuana, it is a good idea to be aware of the crimes that it could be associated with. Driving under the influence Many people when considering the risk of a DUI immediately think of alcohol. Unfortunately, this is not the only substance that can cause impaired driving. Prescription drugs and marijuana can, too, and the latter of which has been a particularly problematic issue on the road. Collisions involving the drug have multiplied in the years since its legalization, so it is important to make sure you are not under that influence when you get behind the wheel.
