The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) is fighting plans to legalise the recreational use of cannabis in the ACT, saying the move would increase road crashes.

The college’s trauma chair, Dr John Crozier, has warned that ACT legislation of cannabis for personal use, which comes into effect at the end of January 2020, will lead to more deaths and injuries on the road.
