Researchers examine effects of dabbing on driving ability

Researchers at both Colorado State University and University of Colorado are using an iPod Touch to measure the effects of “dabbing” marijuana concentrate and how much it impairs driving ability in a new study.

Dabbing is a form of consuming highly potent marijuana concentrate by inhaling vaporized matter.

“Users get very high, very rapidly,” CSU researcher Brian Tracy said in a press release. “It’s almost instantaneous, and the feeling is very strong.”
