last 5 years. Clearly this reveals the great amount of impact cannabis has on an individual, particularly the one who is driving. The major case is with young chauffeurs who get affected by alcohol and drugs and end up in losing their lives.Most government firmsall over the world have actually started to start more stringent laws with regard to driving and alcohol consumption. A consistent checking on such drunken driving and individuals who are
under the impact of intoxicated drugs have to be done regularly.
