Law enforcement agencies across Colorado are cracking down on drugged driving. The Colorado Department of Transportation is putting up billboards, posters and even ads at gas pumps that warn drivers that, “Drugged driving is impaired driving.” Officials say the campaign is aimed at preventing drugged driving caused by prescription medication, over-the-counter medication, medical marijuana and illicit drugs.
However, some of the advertisements specifically target medical marijuana users. One poster being sent to medical marijuana clinics and pharmacies says, “A medical marijuana card isn’t a license to drive under the influence.” Another says “You can’t hide driving under the influence of cannabis. Drug recognition experts are trained to spot the signs.”
