Debate continues about the potential passage of legislation dictating “per se” standards for driving under the influence of marijuana and THC.
Medical Marijuana patients in Colorado need to be aware of the goings on in the government as it could adversely impact your Colorado Constitutionally protected rights to Medical marijuana.
The key graph from Medical Marijuana and Driving: A Policy Memo to Colorado Legislators from the Huffington Post:
In May, the Colorado legislature failed to pass House Bill 1261, which would have created a “per-se” limit of 5 nanograms of THC per milliliter of blood, similar to the 0.08 limit which currently exists for blood alcohol content (BAC). While supporters deemed such a limit a necessity, opponents were not convinced by the evidence presented that 5 ng/ml was an appropriate limit, and called for more research on the subject.
Just don’t do it.
You don’t need some committee all hopped up on caffeine, donuts, and nicotine to tell you that.
The Colorado Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice is tasked with studying the issue of THC and marijuana impaired driving.
In a recent session they discussed proposals for a potential new law.
The key graph from the Denver post:
The drug-policy subcommittee is likely to decide next month what approach â if any â to recommend to the full justice commission, which would make a decision on its recommendation to lawmakers probably by November.
A question often asked is, “How many ounces can I carry as an MMJ patient.”
In Colorado, a patient may engage in the medical use of marijuana, with no more marijuana than is medically necessary to address a debilitating medical condition.
A patient’s medical use of marijuana, within the following limits, is lawful: No more than two ounces of a usable form of marijuana; and no more than six marijuana plants, with three or fewer being mature, flowering plants that are producing a usable form of marijuana.
