Now that Nevada’s Legislature has ended 13 years of ignoring a voter-approved constitutional mandate to provide medical marijuana to sick people, everything’s fine. Right? ...
While plenty of time was spent this session getting the dispensary bill passed, the Legislature ran out of time to consider a separate bill that addressed the issue of driving under the influence of marijuana.
Medical marijuana users — if they’re not careful — could easily violate the DUI standard found in Nevada Revised Statutes 484C.120(3), which says it’s against the law to drive with more than 2 nanograms of marijuana per milliliter in your blood, or 5 nanograms of marijuana metabolite. (A nanogram is a billionth of a gram, and a milliliter is 1/1000th of a liter.)
