"The study -- by University of Colorado Denver professor Daniel Rees and Montana State University professor D. Mark Anderson -- found that the traffic-death rate drops by nearly 9 percent in states after they legalize marijuana for medical use. The researchers arrived at that figure, Rees said, after controlling for other variables such as changes in traffic laws, seat-belt usage and miles driven." (11/30/11)
