Illogical Cannabis Drugged Driving Laws
This law that we have in my state is so retarded.
Per current law, you can be charged with a DUI-D if there is THC or THC metabolites in the blood, along with other Schedule 1 substances/metabolites in the blood.
The THC threshold is 1 ng/ml which is absolutely ridiculous. If it is at or above 1 ng/ml, it can be used as evidence against you and the prosecutor doesn't need to prove that you were impaired as long as that threshold is met or exceeded. The drugged driving penalties are much harsher than the DUI of alcohol penalties.
Remember that THC metabolites can stay in your blood for up to a month, and not just a few hours as some misinformation out there states.
So essentially this law means the state is going to arrest and prosecute you for not even being under the influence or truly impaired because of federal law.
In my state, only medical cannabis is legal yet you are not exempt from these draconian outdated drugged driving laws. Makes absolutely no sense.
The only good news is that the DUI procedures are actually very strict and have to be followed to the letter. So if you have a good DUI lawyer and your lawyer can prove to the jury that the cop didn't follow procedure, your case can be thrown out.
