Can someone be too stoned to drive? A bill that would set a legal limit for the amount of THC allowed in a motorist's bloodstream has cleared its first hurdle and passed unanimously in the Colorado House Judiciary Committee Tuesday night.
Under House Bill 1114, drivers caught with five nanograms THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that produces the "high" sensation, in their blood would be considered to be driving under the influence of marijuana and could be ticketed similarly to a person who was considered to be too drunk to drive.
