Taking The High Road
With the recent push by multiple states to legalize the use of marijuana, concern has grown over the amount of drivers that are operating under the influence of the substance. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has stated that the number of marijuana impaired drivers on the road has increased by 50% over the last seven years. Additionally THC levels in the blood are significantly more difficult to test than is blood alcohol content, making it more difficult for law enforcement to positively identify a possible DUI. Marijuana breathalyzers are currently in development.
