A man from Lakewood, CO, who was accused of driving under the influence of marijuana, was acquitted of all charges earlier this month even though a blood test showed he had over the legal limit of THC in his system. 7.9 nanograms per milliliter to be exact. The legal limit being only 5 nanograms per milliliter.
His lawyer argued that Marijuana is different than alcohol, and that the “standards are not one-size-fits-all”. He claimed his client was perfectly able to drive even though his THC blood levels were over the limit.
