Obama Drug Policy calls for drugged driving charges for UNIMPAIRED marijuana users

Quote:
"Fifteen states have passed laws clarifying that the presence of any illegal drug in a driver's body is per se evidence of impaired driving. ONDCP will work to expand the use of this standard to other states and explore other ways to increase the enforcement of existing DUID laws."

The problem with this is that drug metabolites stay in the body long after the intoxicating effects are gone. In the case of psychoactive cannabis, the metabolites can remain in the body for weeks and even months after the last use.

This means any drug user, with marijuana users most at risk, that drives a car, even while not intoxicated, can be charged with DUID.

This country gets better every day. (disgusted sarcasm)

Take a look at the 15 states that already do this.

All this "Tax like beer" or "regulate like wine" language has to stop, too. Branding cannabis like alcohol does a disservice to the cause. It's a political move.
i happen to agree 100% with the above comment

call me after ive been drinking and say you need help chit buddy srry your on your own.
but call me after a night of smoking and heck yea brotha i'll be right over

theres no way beer wine booze should be associated with the language of any MMJ legislation.

the 2 are very different spirits
