Study links legalized pot with increase in car crash claims

However, Moore believes this provides clear answers that crash risks have increased in these three states where marijuana is legal, but understands that more research needs to be done.

Colorado saw the biggest estimated increase in collision claims after retail marijuana sales began in Colorado.

The HDLI's study said that although there is evidence from simulator and on-road studies that marijuana can cause a deterioration in driving performance, researches haven't been able to definitively connect pot use with an increase in vehicle crashes.

According to the HLDI, past researchers haven't been able to "definitively connect marijuana use with real-world crashes", and even a federal study failed to find such a link.

Washington's increase in claim frequency outpaced nearby Montana and Idaho by 6.2 percent, while Oregon's increase exceeded nearby Idaho, Montana and Nevada by 4.5 percent, IIHS says. Allowing for the total control group, "the combined effect for the three states was a smaller, but still significant at 3 percent", said HLDI Vice President Matt Moore.

The HLDI is affiliated with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a nonprofit research organization that usually focuses on figuring out which cars are safest. Results from the study are expected in 2020.

A recent insurance study links increased auto crash claims to legalized recreational marijuana.
