Denver Colorado is spending one million dollars on t.v. ads to try and stop stoned / high driving. According to the Chicago Sun Times, the Colorado Department of Transportation unveiled the “Drive High, Get a DUI” campaign – this is the states first effort since marijuana was legalized in Colorado in 2012. The point is to remind drivers that marijuana should be treated like alcohol and not be used before driving.
Law enforcement wants to educate the public on impaired driving. Most Americans are very aware of the dangers and risks associated with drinking and driving. As marijuana is now legal in some states, these states are also educating the public on the risks of driving while stoned / high on marijuana.
