Don't drive high: it's not worth the risk

BC Cannabis Stores

The THC in cannabis can affect your reaction time, decision-making skills, and ability to judge distances. Drug-affected driving is illegal in BC. As with alcohol, please plan a safe ride home before using cannabis products.

Drug-affected driving is dangerous and against the law. You could face consequences that may include a fine, criminal charges, and even jail time.

Cannabis can impair your ability to drive by affecting:

  • balance and coordination
  • motor skills
  • attention
  • judgment
  • reaction time
  • decision-making skills

Use of cannabis affects your ability to react and may increase the chances of causing an accident. Don’t get behind the wheel or get in a car with drug-affected driver – it’s just not worth the risk. BC has a zero tolerance policy for drivers in the Graduated Licensing Program (GLP).

Mixing cannabis with alcohol may increase your level of impairment and may lead to an even greater risk of an accident.
