Colton Wiens, Video Journalist The national president of MADD Canada, Patricia Hynes-Coates, is hoping to teach young students about the dangers of impaired driving, especially after using marijuana. MADD Canada’s school assembly program visited Ethel Milliken School on Thursday, with a goal of educating elementary school students, who will soon apply for their driver’s licence, about the dangers of driving while impaired by marijuana. “We want to make sure that our students or our youth do realize that you are actually impaired, if you consume cannabis. Any substance you put in your body, you’re impaired,” Hynes-Coates said. According to MADD, road crashes are the leading cause of death for 16- to 25-year-olds in the country.
