That would be a gamble. Each jurisdiction is treating things differently. SOME require actual proof of poor driving such as weaving, disobeying traffic control devices, Etc. Currently,, prosecutors and departments may pursue marijuana impairment zealously, or require proof of poor driving.
Just because it's legal doesn't mean that it is a free-for-all, as people are sometimes under that impression. With that being said, a little Common Sense is bound to go far.
Remember, smell is their number one way of detecting "impairment." If you smell like you just rolled out of the Cheech and Chong van, you're probably going to get some questions. LOL
At some point in the future, they are likely to require proof of poor driving to arrest and prosecute statewide. A sacrificial lamb is going to have to take it to court in order for that to come to pass, assuming they don't try to clear it up legislatively which is very unlikely.
