Does Medical Marijuana Lead to a Fall in Drugged Driving Deaths?

Traffic fatalities fell by more than 20% nationwide during the study period, even as “medical marijuana sales expanded.” Between enactment of its medical marijuana law in 1996 and 2010, California saw a 31% drop in traffic fatalities. The number of traffic fatalities also fell in Hawaii and Rhode Island after they legalized medical marijuana—by 14% and 21%, respectively. I think its possible that people who substitute driving high for driving drunk which is probably safer. Anyone have any input?
