LAPD targeting stoned drivers with (optional) roadside pot tests


“Led Zeppelin!”

The LAPD’s increased DUI patrols tonight will also include a beefed-up effort to find stoned drivers, authorities say. The department will expand its use of an instant drug test to include those pulled over in traffic. Previously it was used only at DUI checkpoints and at three LAPD jails, the City Attorney’s office says.
City Attorney Mike Feuer indicated the tests will come in handy when cops encounter those suspected of being under the influence of marijuana. There is good news, however, The test is purely optional. You don’t have to take it. LA Weekly has the full story.
