“Medical cannabis legalization has reduced auto insurance premiums by $1.5 billion in all states that have currently legalized, with the potential to reduce premiums by an additional $900 million if the remaining states were to legalize”

According to Health Economics premiums dropped by about $22 per year on average after states enacted legalization

Medical marijuana is also proving to result in safer roads. Creating savings in medical expenses related to auto accidents.
