Marijuana said to increase accident claims

While Indiana has not legalized the use of recreational marijuana, people from Indiana who may be travelling to any of the places in the country where it is legal this summer should be aware of the potential risks on the road.

While proponents of legalized pot of course assert that its use is completely safe, some new research may show otherwise.

In the case of one crash that happened over a year ago in Clay County, a criminal path has led to some resolution recently.
