Hickenlooper supports THC DUI bill

Governor John Hickenlooper.

The medical marijuana community doesn't really hear much from Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper regarding issues affecting it, so it's interesting to catch a glimpse into his thoughts via the document calling for a special session of the Legislature, which will begin Monday.

Besides other issues, like civil unions, the chambers will take up the DUI bill that imposes a per-se limit of 5 nanograms of THC per milliliter of a driver's blood. This has MMJ patients spooked, not only because they thought the bill was dead, as a casualty of the civil-unions filibuster, but because the substance can remain in your blood at high levels — though not necessarily impairing the person — for days after partaking. Advocates of the bill counter that tests can tell the difference between active THC and the older stuff.

Either way, according to his executive order, it seems the good governor is all about a limit.
