Amendment 64: Communities in Transition

Legal pot, legal limits and the impact of Amendment 64 on drug treatment

April 23, 2013
A State Senate committee voted 4 – 1 on Monday to reject the Marijuana DUI Bill that would have set the legal limit of driving under the influence of pot at 5 nanograms of THC-9 per milliliter of blood. Critics argue that the limit is too low and that a person's weight and tolerance to THC, the active component in marijuana, can play a role in the effects of the drug.
