Cannabis and driving fact sheets: The International Council on Alcohol, Drugs & Traffic Safety (ICADTS)


This series of fact sheets on the topic of cannabis and driving aims to to review the scientific evidence on cannabis and driving to provide objective information and inform the development of legislation to manage cannabis-impaired driving. The International Council on Alcohol, Drugs & Traffic Safety (ICADTS) aims to address road safety, with a focus on preventing and reducing traffic crashes caused by driving under the influence of cannabis. This approach demands a different approach from drug control strategies designed to reduce illicit cannabis use in the general population.

Topics covered include:

  • Recent experimental evidence
  • Recent epidemiological evidence
  • Impaired driving detection and toxicology
  • Policy and legislative issues
  • Medicinal cannabis and novel psychoactive substances

The EMCDDA contributed its expertise to these fact sheets.
