We all know that .08 is the legal limit in most states for alcohol intoxication, but should there be a legal limit to pot smoke?
This is the issue currently being argued in the Colorado legislature as senators are debating whether or not there should be a legal limit as to how much THC is in your system.
THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol and is the chemical in cannabis that induces a high.
A similar bill was up for debate last year and received a lot of opposition from both sides of the case. The legalization of marijuana supporters believe there is no correlation between THC levels and being impaired while others believed that the state needs to set some measure in place to define marijuana impairment.
The current bill suggests that a pot smoker should be legally impaired if 5 or more nanograms of THC is found in their system.
