Colorado’s Department of Highway Safety has released some new data showing a decrease in fatal road traffic incidents since cannabis legalisation took place. The findings are in contrast to the fear mongering predictions by the anti-cannabis campaigners who claimed cannabis legalisation would only increase danger on the roads.
Overall, the total roadway fatalities this year are down from last year. Whats more the fatalities are down from the 13-year average. Of the first seven months in 2015, the first five months saw a lower fatality figure this year than the previous year, two months saw a slightly higher figure this year, and in one month the two figures were equal.
