Governor Tomblin Pushing for More Testing On DUI’s Involving Drugs

It seems that the Governor is pushing new legislation in both the house and the senate to give police more weapons to use when dealing with DUI’s involving the use of drugs.

The troubling thing with this article is that the emphasis is put on drugs being in your system, rather than you being impaired by the drugs.  People taking prescription medications are a prime example of instances where drugs do not normally impair them when taken as prescribed.  These individuals take the medication not to feel high, but to function normally like the rest of us.  This whole article is skewed towards a bright-line rule of if any drugs are in your system then you are impaired.  Something that science proves is not the truth.
