Marijuana And Driving: A High Priority For Cops


Recommended Posts

What counts as being too high to drive?

 

In both Washington and Colorado, laws approved by voters let anyone at least 21 years old possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana for recreational use. But the means of judging whether someone is driving while impaired varies in the two states.

 

In Washington, driving with a THC blood-content level of 5 nanograms per milliliter is illegal. In Colorado, no such limit was set. THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, is the main mind-altering chemical in marijuana.

 

This is a critical issue for Michigan Cannabis Patients. People v. Koon is a terrible decision, the law in Michigan currently punishes a person for having "any amount (presence) of active THC, delta 9, in their blood. A person who is driving as any reasonable driver would, is still considered to be committing a crime (punishes the same as an OWI) just for having the presence of THC.

Section 7. (e) All other acts and parts of acts inconsistent with this act do not apply to the medical use of marihuana as provided for by this act.

 

 

 

Am I missing something or does Sec 7.(e) actually mean what it says?

 

No you are not missing anything it reads just like that and it's the reason the courts won't,can't,let it stand up in court
