 Q: “Are you allowed to drive if you use medical marijuana and are licensed by the state?”

My answer:

There are many prescribed medications that will impair your ability to drive. Any of them, including medical marijuana, could cause you to be guilty of a DUI or DWAI. If you drive and your tested blood shows levels of the medication or THC from Marijuana then you may be impaired and may be convicted. It is a very serious business and the police are cracking down on Medical Marijuana and driving.
