“Fox News Medical A-Team member Dr. Marc Siegel on Wednesday asserted that marijuana was “worse than alcohol” for drivers because it stays in the system for days, and that pregnant women could not be trusted not to abuse the drug.
In a segment on Fox & Friends that resembled 1930s-era anti-marijuana propaganda films like “Reefer Madness,” Siegel predicted a dire future for the state of California after it voted to legalize recreational marijuana.
Siegel pointed out, not surprisingly, that more people in Colorado had been caught driving with marijuana in their system following the legalization of the drug. And he also noted that the number of people who had car accidents with marijuana in their system had doubled.
“That doesn’t mean that pot is the cause,” he admitted. “It means that people who die in car wrecks, twice as many as before have some marijuana in their system.”
“It’s worse than alcohol in some ways,” the Fox News doctor added. “It stays in your system for days and days and days — THC — so it impairs judgement. That’s what you need with driving. You know, it impairs how you are thinking, where you perceive the next car being.”
