A bill has been sponsored but not brought to the floor.
Then you need to talk to your representatives. A couple bills have been introduced. None have gone anywhere. I don't believe your representative is the sponsor of any of them.

True twice.. Yet the standards of impairment can fool. Back in my road trips days I lite up driving (never had a situation of any type of traffic problem.) I might of missed a turn now and again.

To me most people who arrive at impairment are "NEW" Smokers, period. In time they manage it.

the leaders of the congress should be contacted for this to get anywhere. they are not allowing it to be brought to the floor.
in light of jeff's new pot policies coming out, I guess they are cautious not to pee of the admin.

see my thread on jeff sessions and new developments about states and pot.

here's a more recent find

Jeff Sessions Unleashes Federal Prosecutors On Legal Marijuana

(One of Trump admin's big donors is Sheldon Adelson who I suspect owns a good part of the illegal pot trade in America. I ran across him during a campaign I did on fb to raise awareness of med marijuana vote in Fla. The vote that failed in 2014 I think was the year, was defeated in the final weeks by a flush of money -millions- against the measure from Addleson a Nevada citizen and casino owner. I put two and two together... )

Really? I thought driving while impaired was allowed all over the place.

Since I don't feel the penalties for driving while impaired are harsh enough, I hope they up the ante on marijuana, and then up the rest of the 'impairment' substances.

Too many people are incapable of judging what impairment is, or what will impair you. They usually find out after the fact, and someone else may already have paid the ultimate price.

someone will invent an advanced test for it you can count on that. They practically bury people for driving drunk nowadays. once it was just the opposite.

GottaGo, here in Kansas, and other states I have spent time in out west sure are harsh with impairment.

The trouble is by law, the standard for impairment which most locations are HARSH, but most pot smokers after a short introduction to pot are quite able to drive, walk, interact with others..

I know it isn't me alone.
