Dr. Robert Mann at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto is trying to determine the relationship between marijuana consumption and driving ability, using a “state of the art” simulator.

There are two kinds of buzzed people who take the wheel of his simulated Chevy in the basement of a CAMH building, Dr. Robert Mann observes: those who drive cautiously and those who let ’er rip.

The scientist with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health points to the flat-screen TVs that serve as the “windshield” for the extracted cab of a Chevrolet compact — complete with steering wheel, dashboard, gear shift and pedals — and explains the clinical study he’s been working on since 2013.

Mann wants to know how well people can drive when they’re high.

He’s inviting volunteers to smoke up and get behind the wheel of the “state of the art” driving simulator housed in the building off College St.
