Judge: Looking Stoned Doesn’t Equate to Impaired Driving
A Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court judge has determined that just because a motorist appears to be stoned doesn’t mean they have been operating a vehicle under the influence of marijuana.
Central District Court Judge Andrew M. D’Angelo said last week during an evidentiary hearing that while he acknowledges the consumption of marijuana can lead to impairment, there is “no evidence” that characteristics such as “red eyes and drowsiness” are “equated with impaired driving.”
D’Angelo went on to say that a police officer could not measure how a person’s marijuana use has hindered his or her ability to drive.

Texas Will Consider Decriminalization in 2017
Texas lawmakers will push to eliminate the criminal penalties associated with small time marijuana crimes in the 2017 legislative session.
According to a report from the Texas Tribune, legislative forces walked up to the steps of the State Capitol on Monday to submit a number of cannabis-related bills, one of which aims to decriminalize up to an ounce of marijuana all across the Lone Star state. The goal of the measure, according to Dem. State Rep. Joe Moody, the lawmaker responsible for drafting the bill, is to simply make this offense a civil infraction, punishable with a $250 fine—no jail time, no criminal record.
While not a perfect plan, the scope of House Bill 81 would be a relatively solid reform for Texas, especially considering the current charge for this offense is a criminal misdemeanor, with a penalty of up to a 180 days in the slammer and a $2000 fine.
