Local assemblyman calls on CHP to identify legal limit for drugged driving

Local Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham (R-Templeton) announced Assembly Bill 903, which calls on the California Highway Patrol “to study and identify options for a legal limit for Marijuana-related drugged driving.”

A statement released by Assemblyman Cunningham’s office on Friday says Directing CHP to explore marijuana intoxication levels will bring greater safety to the the State of California by establishing acceptable limits like alcohol intoxication currently has.

“With the recent legalization of recreational marijuana, it is imperative that the state take action on this issue,” said Assemblyman Cunningham. “For road safety, we need to see whether the science supports a legal limit for THC while driving.”

Although there’s no consensus on the best way to measure drugged driving limits, several states, including Colorado and Washington, have set five nanograms per milliliter of active THC as their legal limit for Marijuana impairment.
