Traffic deaths in Nevada dropped over 10 percent in the first year of recreational marijuana, according to data provided by the Nevada Department of Public Safety.

Between July 2017 and May 2018 just 277 people died in car crashes in the state, compared to 310 traffic accident deaths between July 2016 and May 2017.

One of the concerns of recreational marijuana opponents was that traffic fatalities and DUI arrests would increase if pot was legalized.

In Nevada, you’re considered to be impaired from marijuana if you have more than 2 nanograms of active THC in your system.
