Aggressive is definitely an adjective you could use to describe Senate Bill 289. The bill would call for a “zero tolerance” policy for driving while under the influence of drugs, including, but not limited to marijuana, heroin and painkillers.

He and supporters insisted that implementation of the bill would create much safer driving conditions for motoristsfer driving conditions for motorists, as driving while impaired by drugs is on the rise. But critics are aplenty and they think that the zero tolerance policy is overreaching. Some people may test positive for very small trace amounts of drugs and get in trouble under the restrictions of the bill, even if they themselves have not consumed drugs.
The bill is currently stalled. It is not likely to return to discussion for months to come. Do you think that a zero tolerance policy is a bit much? Or do you think that it is necessary to keep roads safe?
