Colorado ads discourage driving while stoned

DENVER, COLO. (KRQE) – On Thursday, the Colorado DOT unveiled a new series of ads to try and keep people from driving while stoned.

The ads are the first of their kind with the slogan “Get High, Get a DUI.”

Selected state troopers are now learning how to spot stoned drivers in a nine-day class.

One hurdle they are facing?

There are so many different types of marijuana – which can produce a different high and many drivers who do smoke pot may not be aware of their levels of intoxication.
