With legalized recreational marijuana the new law of the land, California has put new regulations into place in an effort to prevent driving while high. Becoming familiar with these rules could prevent Californians from inadvertently breaking the law.
Like many other parts of the country, California is currently suffering from a sweeping drug problem. However, it doesn't just extend to the usual illegal drugs that many people often think of like cocaine or heroine. Illegal controlled substance abuse is also a big issue.
When voters opted to legalize marijuana last November, it raised a number of questions. Some of these questions surrounded how the substance would be regulated now that it's legal. Other questions involved the potential consequences to public safety.
