marijuana & driving

Marijuana's Effects on Actual Driving Performance:

The third study was conducted in high-density urban traffic. Separate groups of 16 subjects were treated with 100 ug/kg THC and placebo; and, ethanol (mean BAC .034 g%) and placebo. Alcohol impaired performance relative to placebo but subjects did not perceive it. THC did not impair driving performance yet the subjects thought it had.

Yes, I cherry-picked that quote, the overall effects weren't completely benign, but overall marijuana's effects for a joint or two didn't exceed alcohol at a .08% bloodstream level...
