Colorado has passed their marijuana DUI bill known as House Bill 1325 by a 24-11 vote. You can now be receive charges similar to drunk drivers, which means possible loss of license or worse jail time. If you are caught driving with 5 nanograms of THC per milliliter of blood or more, you could be booked for a marijuana DUI.
The bill must now be approved by Governor John Hickenlooper to become law. Hickenlooper supports stoned driving legislation and has said he will sign the bill.
When trying to figure out if someone is too stoned, nanograms is accurate enough. You could have that in your blood and not even smoked that day. I just hope people that are completely sober but have 5 nanograms in their system don't get screwed over.
