You can currently get a DWI from weed, alcohol, xanax, so there's no change there.

Where can you drink? Usually in private or in sanctioned bars. Same with this, right?

I don't think it's all that complex.

Yup, pretty much this. From what I understand, in Washington, there will be a year of discussion on how to enact the law, with stores able to apply for a permit to sell it by Dec. 2013. If the new alcohol law passed there last year is any indication, you should be able to legally buy weed in the summer of 2014.

BUT I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that the governor has to enact the people-not-going-to-jail-for-posession part of the law within the next 30 days.

I'm not particularly bothered by laziness or the munchies. It's just that the human lung is not designed to ingest smoke of any kind really. In moderation it's not the end of the world, like most things.

i really don't understand how they can prove you're high when you're driving it's not like they can give you a breathalyzer for weed. yeah they can drug test you but marijuana stays in your system for so long they can't prove you are high at a certain time.

I live in WA and was hoping this would not pass... the law needs to be reformed. As it stands now, driving while under the influence is a felony. From what I understand, you could have smoked two or more days earlier and still be considered under the influence... the way they determine that with blood testing needs to be dramatically changed.

People need to actually go read the initiative. Its not really legal, the federal government still considers it illegal. This just allows for stricter DUI laws, this is almost a step backward. An officer can assume you are impaired at any time and give you a blood test and hand you a DUI. There was public backlash over this last year in colorado when a bunch of medical marijuana users were getting DUIs like nothing just because they have THC remains in their blood.

Well I feel the same way to an extent, but its not like I'm going to go work out. When I think of not wasting my high, I'm thinking of watching a good movie or TV show.

They can't prove if you're on xanax, cocaine, etc, with a simple roadside breathalizer... doesn't mean they can't have probable cause to bring you in and blood test you.

but just because it's in your blood doesn't mean you're currently under the influence.

I'm not sure how they can test levels, but I'm sure they'll come up with something. Doesn't the amount that shows up in the bloodwork fade over time?

Either way, you can get a dwi for it now, so that part really doesn't change much, as far as I can tell.
