One of the issues with legalizing marijuana is the inevitable surge of people who think they can go out and drive after smoking a fat ol' blunt. Not the case.
While there isn't really a breathalyzer for hitting bongs, cops still have ways to crack down on those dumb enough to drive while high.
Washington's law does change DUI provisions by setting a new blood-test limit for marijuana — a limit police are training to enforce. Lawyers are ready to challenge this, though, as a positive result could be from previous legal consumption that wasn't affecting their driving.
Colorado has no new DUI provisions, making them scramble to figure out how to handle it.
