    Franelic, Kuzman, et al 2011, found that marijuana intoxication increases automobile accidents. Yacoubian 2007 study showed similar findings. It is important to mention that studies have also shown that marijuana offers analgesic effects for pain (Hogan, Gonzalez et al 2010). Are motorists in Colorado and other states in the U.S. and abroad where marijuana is legal at greater risk of motor vehicle accidents as a result of increased marijuana availability?
