Stoned Drivers the Target of New Safety Campaign

Next month the Colorado Department of Transportation kicks off a campaign aimed at driving under the influence called “Drive High, Get a DUI.” So how big is the problem now that marijuana is legal in Colorado and Washington? Nothing appears to have changed in Washington, as you still can't even legally buy marijuana here at this time. In Colorado, where pot stores are doing big business and the system seems to be ahead of ours, a media investigation found that no state agency is currently tracking the impact of marijuana on the roads.
