The Hound Foundation is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization that seeks to educate young people and their communities about the impact of driving under the influence of marijuana. As a country, we are just beginning to understand how marijuana impairs drivers. Recognizing this knowledge gap, the Hound Foundation seeks to raise money to fund research to better understand the correlation of recent marijuana use with driving impairment. The more facts we can share with drivers the fewer mistakes they are likely to make about driving stoned.
