Washington grapples with high drivers
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON- One of the offshoots of legalized pot in Washington is a higher number of drivers testing positive for marijuana.
The state patrol's crime lab says 745 people have tested positive, so far this year. Typically there are about 1,000 who test positive in a full year.
The state patrol says it doesn't necessarily mean there's a rash of driving high, rather troopers are looking harder for drivers operating under the influence and may be ordering more marijuana blood tests.
Of those testing positive for pot, the majority of drivers were over the legal limit.
