The following is from a recent paper published by the Institute for the Study of Labor:


To date, 16 states have passed medical marijuana laws, yet very little is known about the law's effects. Using state-level data, we examine the relationship between medical marijuana laws and a variety of outcomes. Legalization of medical marijuana is associated with increased use of marijuana among adults, but not among minors. In addition, legalization is associated with a nearly 9 percent decrease in traffic fatalities, most likely because of its impact on alcohol consumption ( emphasis mine ).
