While there is no test for cannabis impairment like the breathalyzer that police use for alcohol, impairment can still be recognized via driver behavior on the road and through sobriety tests. The law steps up police training on impaired driving and strengthens the impaired driving laws, which will help keep drivers impaired by any drug, not just cannabis, off the road. Drivers who do not submit to a drug influence evaluation from a police officer trained as a Drug Recognition Expert may have their license suspended.
