Cannabis DUI Testing Creates Record Buzzkill in Legalization States

«Many pro-legalization activists opposed Washington’s initiative for this very reason, and many more ought to denounce any future initiative that considers such an unreasonable capitulation.»

«This unscientific, highly controversial cannabis testing scheme declares an arbitrary limit of 5 nanograms per mililiter of blood (far less than the alcohol limit of 8 nanograms) as impairment, and does not account for the fact that regular tokers, like patients, maintain higher-than-baseline THC levels in their blood even if they have not consumed cannabis in days. Just getting in a car to drive to work in the morning automatically makes tens of thousands of medical marijuana patients, not to mention other regular tokers, instant criminals under these laws.»
