Summary of "A meta-analysis of the crash risk of cannabis-positive drivers in culpability studies-Avoiding interpretational bias."

Culpability studies, a common study design in the cannabis crash risk literature, typically report odds-ratios (OR) indicating the raised risks of a culpable accident. This parameter is of unclear policy relevance, and is frequently misinterpreted as an estimate of the increased crash risk, a practice that introduces a substantial "interpretational bias".
