CO Considers Limits on Marijuana for Drivers

After three consecutive attempts to get a legal limit on the books for driving stoned, House Republican Leader Mark Waller says this is the year for a small compromise and legislative success.

“We needed it before with the proliferation of medical marijuana,” Waller, of Colorado Springs said. “We’re seeing traffic accidents and fatalities go up as it relates to marijuana being a factor. We need this legislation with the passage of Amendment 64, and we absolutely need to protect our citizens on Colorado roads.”

The bill faces two important hurdles Tuesday when it is heard in the House Judiciary Committee and the governor’s Amendment 64 task force will consider endorsing the legislation. The task force is responsible for recommending regulations to lawmakers for voter approved recreational marijuana use.
