Lawmakers may update field sobriety tests for marijuana detection

In New York, it is illegal to drive when one's blood-alcohol content is .08 percent or higher, and this can result in drunk driving charges. When marijuana is involved, however, there is no legally allowable amount. If any marijuana is detected in the bloodstream or urine at all, a driver may face consequences for driving while ability impaired. This is very problematic, because it is possible for traces of marijuana to remain detectable in a person's blood or urine days after the person smoked it.
