Re: “CannaBiz: Back behind the wheel

You need to consider the actual arrest numbers, not just the percent increase. According to Heather Halpape, at CDOT, DUI-pot arrests increased from 351 arrests in 2009 to 599 arrests in 2010. Total DUI arrests for each year were about 27,000, so DUI-pot increased from 1.2% of all DUI arrests in 2009, to 2% of all DUI arrests in 2010. The numbers are way up, but are a minuscule part of the impaired driving problem in Colorado.

Per SAMHSA.gov, Colorado has about 2,300,000 drinkers, so just over 1% of drinkers are arrested for DUI each year. We have about 370,000 monthly pot smokers, and 130,000 patients, so about 0.1% of pot smokers are arrested for DUI each year.
