Can Sober Drivers get DUIs?

A California lawmaker is proposing a DWI law that would make it illegal to drive while sober.

The bill would make it:

Because she wants to make it “unlawful for any person who has any level of cannabinoids or synthetic cannabinoid compound in his or her blood or urine to drive a vehicle.”

Cannabinoids — the active in ingredient in cannabis — can stay in the body for up to sixty days. Pot’s effect wears off in 90 minutes to three hours. Ergo, someone who’s had a a joint thirty days prior to any collision can be jailed for DUI under Torres’ ignorant bill. AB 2552 creates more costs to the state, criminalizes innocent people and does not the make roads any bit safer.
