Marijuana is now legal in Washington and Colorado and medical marijuana is legal or pending approval in dozens of states across the country, including New Hampshire which is voting on a bill tomorrow. It raises the question: how high is too high to drive under the influence of pot? That’s something to consider here in New Hampshire, where a UNH/ WMUR poll showed 79% approval for legalizing medical marijuana. Josh Harkinson covers a wide range of topics for Mother Jones, and recently wrote about the as-yet-undefined meaning of driving under the influence.
We examine the issues raised in a recent Union Leader series on Drunk Driving! Despite decades of attention, the series found major problems still exist: repeat offenders still getting behind the wheel, and the newer concern over people driving under other influences, especially prescription drugs. We’ll look at the issues raised and solutions offered from tougher laws to more treatment.
