When can I drive after smoking cannabis?

This is very difficult to determine as this is dependent on a number of factors such as the strength of the cannabis, the amount of cannabis consumed and also depends on the individual too, for example – age, body type, tolerance levels and whether you smoke cannabis regularly or not.

It is likely that if you have smoked cannabis within 24 hours of being tested that you are likely to be over the legal limit, as the current legal limit for cannabis is 2mg.

There have been many studies over the years to determine this, and it really is almost impossible for us to help you predict if you will be over the legal limit. This is due to due to the number of afore mentioned factors that have to be taken into account, however you should work on the basis that if you are a regular smoker and have smoked recently prior to being tested – the likelihood is that you will be over the legal limit!

It goes without saying, but in order to avoid running the risk of facing a possible driving disqualification, criminal conviction or even worse, being in an accident, you should avoid consuming any controlled drug if you intend to drive a motor vehicle.
