    DescriptionThis article explores the findings of two studies, one of which was my own work, on the effect of legalising recreational cannabis sales on traffic fatalities. One of the topics is how the diverging findings between the two studies - mine found a temporary increase, while the other found no evidence of an effect - may not be that contradictory.
