Colorado’s new marijuana law does not make any changes to the state’s driving-under-the-influence laws, according to the Associated Press. Washington’s law sets a new blood-test limit for marijuana. Police are training to enforce the new limit, and some lawyers are preparing to challenge it, the article notes.
“We’ve had decades of studies and experience with alcohol,” Washington State Patrol spokesman Dan Coon told the AP. “Marijuana is new, so it’s going to take some time to figure out how the courts and prosecutors are going to handle it. But the key is impairment: We will arrest drivers who drive impaired, whether it be drugs or alcohol.”
