Lawmaker mulls measure that establishes pot driving impairment level
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — A state lawmaker is considering introducing a measure that would establish a marijuana driving impairment level similar to the 0.08 blood alcohol level.
The Denver Post reports that Boulder Democrat Rep. Claire Levy plans to sponsor a measure that sets the threshold for the active ingredient of marijuana in the bloodstream at 5 nanograms per milliliter of blood.
Vagueness in current state law plus concern over the rising use of medical marijuana prompted the ColoradoCommission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice to draft a proposal.
Several states have zero-tolerance policies for THC or its metabolites, while Pennsylvania and handful of other states have established a 5 nanogram per milliliter of blood limit.
