Zero Tolerance DUI - Marijuana bill would unfairly persecute regular medicinal users, say San Diego DUI lawyers

Latest extreme California DUI - drugs (marijuana) bill is borderline stupid, most San Diego attorneys agree.

"This bill would make it unlawful for a person to drive a motor vehicle if his or her blood contains any detectable amount of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol of marijuana or any other drug classified in Schedules I, II, III, or IV of the California Uniform Controlled Substance Act. "

According to NORML, this bill is an example of general panic initiated by the whole legalization movement.  For 30 years, the U.S. has had millions of stoners driving. 

There's no evidence of dangerous DUI - mairjuana driving hurting the public for these millions of buzzed motorists over thirty years, and no scientific evidence of linking marijuana to impairment, explain San Diego DUI attorneys.

San Diego DUI lawyers say this would mean a drunk driving conviction for anyone driving who is not even stoned but maybe took some medicine days ago.

Drivers with any amount of prescription drugs as Ambien, Vicodin or even phentermine, a diet drug, in their systems would be dinged by this dumbness.

Medical marijuana supporters are rightfully ticked off because THC stays in your bloodstream for a days, even if long past a buzz.

Laws like this would have the effect of unfairly persecuting regular medicinal users.
