We bring in the new year with new laws for use of marijuana in vehicles on the roads. Don’t be ignorant of the fact that if you drive impaired from use of ANY drug you may be arrested for DUI.
Senate Bill 65 prohibits the smoking of ingesting of any marijuana product while driving or being a passenger in a motor vehicle.
Senate Bill 94 Prohibits non-medically authorized open cannabis or cannabis products in cars.
It is important to understand that legalized pot doesn’t not mean your simply free to use the drug. Just as you cannot be impaired by use of alcohol or have an open container of alcohol in a car – the same type of rules apply to use of marijuana in cars and driving.
If you are arrested or cited you should seek the counsel of a criminal defense attorney. We are here to help.
Stay sober and stay safe – Have Happy New Year
