No. Driving while experiencing the psychoactive and intoxicating effects of cannabis containing THC is extremely dangerous. Even if you don’t feel high, using cannabis:

  • Slows down reaction time and thinking skills.
  • Makes it harder to judge distances.

Although the effects of intoxication from cannabis that contains THC may wear off, cannabis stays in your system for some time. It is recommended that individuals who use cannabis refrain from driving (or operating other machinery or mobility devices) for at least 6 hours after using cannabis. If tested, you could test positive for cannabis content in your body. There are strict penalties for driving and cannabis in Ontario. For more information please visit the Ministry of Transportation website here.  Also be aware that combining alcohol and cannabis can elevate the felt effects and cause severe impairment.
