Now that marijuana is legal in Colorado, legislators are forced to take another look at the driving laws in effect. Washington plans to use a blood level, which will require that impaired drivers consent to a blood draw. This line of thinking needs to stop - law enforcement should be focusing on actual driving impairment, not a number that is based on flawed data. In Colorado, you don't need to drive to receive a DUI. We should advocate dash cams for the police force and require that they have proof of impaired driving in order to charge people with a DUI.

Colorado lawmakers are preparing to take up driving standards yet again when they convene next year.
