Back on March 1, we discussed Colorado State Sen. Steve King's efforts to set a standard of marijuana in the bloodstream at which drivers could be prosecuted for DUI. Though King's bill made it to the Senate floor during the special session earlier this year, it failed to pass on a 17-17 vote.
The bill may have failed in part because of concerns whether the method the bill would use to determine intoxication is accurate or fair to medical marijuana patients. Nevertheless, King is once again pushing his bill through committee. The Senate Transportation Legislation Review committee approved the bill 10-6 on Sep. 14. That means the Senate will once again consider the bill during the next legislative session in January. A news article about the bill does not say whether King substantially amended the bill before re-submitting it to committee.
