Medical marijuana users still worry about DUI

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
marijuana-dui-issuesNow that Nevada’s Legislature has ended 13 years of ignoring a voter-approved constitutional mandate to provide medical marijuana to sick people, everything’s fine. Right?
 
Now that state-authorized medical marijuana dispensaries will be setting up shop, starting in 2014, getting the drug won’t involve committing a crime. (Under current law, you can’t buy marijuana, even with a prescription. You can grow your own plants, but buying the seeds is illegal.)
 
But with dispensaries, the problem’s solved. Right?
 
Maybe not.
 
While plenty of time was spent this session getting the dispensary bill passed, the Legislature ran out of time to consider a separate bill that addressed the issue of driving under the influence of marijuana.
 
Medical marijuana users — if they’re not careful — could easily violate the DUI standard found in Nevada Revised Statutes 484C.120(3), which says it’s against the law to drive with more than 2 nanograms of marijuana per milliliter in your blood, or 5 nanograms of marijuana metabolite. (A nanogram is a billionth of a gram, and a milliliter is 1/1000th of a liter.)
 
That’s a stricter standard, by the way, than exists for cocaine or heroin (50 nanograms per milliliter of blood), methamphetamine (100 nanograms) or LSD (10 nanograms). And there is no exception for people who have a prescription for medical marijuana.
 
That means medical marijuana patients might inadvertently smoke or otherwise ingest their medicine, drive a car even hours later and potentially be breaking the law.
 
That bothered Assembly Majority Leader William Horne, D-Las Vegas. His Assembly Bill 351 would have forced prosecutors to prove a driver was actually impaired by marijuana, rather than just show the nanogram standard was exceeded.
 
“I think we set people up for facing charges that may be ridiculous,” Horne said.
