The Marseille police headquarters delivered, on Tuesday, "the key figures" for cannabis driving.

There is something frightening about the positivity rate: 13.9% of the 13,385 screenings carried out were positive, or 1,861 drivers checked in violation during the 8,580 roadside checks linked to narcotics, carried out mainly by the gendarmerie.

At the same time, the prefecture indicated that 8,687 tort lump sum fines were drawn up in 2021 for drug use.

This policy is part of a desire to target consumers, "the first links in the trafficking chain" and is part of a government campaign to fight against cannabis.

On the road, the risk of causing a fatal accident is doubled after consuming cannabis.

When mixed with alcohol, it is multiplied by 29, says the authorities.
