Driving under the influence of marijuana is potentially very dangerous.

This research shows the effects of marijuana negatively impact driving. Here is a quote from the research, “Cannabis smoking increases lane weaving and impaired cognitive function. Critical-tracking tests, reaction times, divided-attention tasks, and lane-position variability all show cannabis-induced impairment.
