According to the vehicle code, it’s already a crime to drive stoned, yet Chino Assemblywoman Norma Torres has introduced Assembly Bill 2552, which would make it a crime to drive sober. How?
Cannabinoids — the active in ingredient in cannabis — can stay in the body for up to sixty days. Pot’s effect wears off in 90 minutes to three hours. Ergo, someone who’s had a a joint thirty days prior to any collision can be jailed for DUI under Torres’ ignorant bill. AB 2552 creates more costs to the state, criminalizes innocent people and does not the make roads any bit safer.
