I would guess that this explains much of it. The relationship between marijuana intoxication (alone) and accident risk is far more complicated than for alcohol and accident risk. Interesting NIH article that pulls together data from a lot of other studies: THE EFFECT OF CANNABIS COMPARED WITH ALCOHOL ON DRIVING
One interesting thing about marijuana impairment seems to be that consciousness of the impairment is retained, i.e. people who are stoned are (correctly, or even excessively) underconfident, whereas people who are drunk are (incorrectly) overconfident.
Wouldn't personally suggest consuming either before driving or riding, but from a public policy standpoint it's interesting to look at the evidence.
