We’ve told you it was coming, and it has. It, in this case, is a bill to change how Nevada marijuana DUI arrests are made, based on how the DUI is calculated. Basically, almost everyone agrees that the way marijuana DUIs are measured in Nevada is worthless. You can be sober, and have been sober for quite some time, and still the test would consider you driving under the influence if you had used marijuana at all recently because the current test measures a level in your blood that does not correspond with impairment. Now, that test is still valid and still how you would be arrested right now.

Here is some relevant text from the proposed bill to change marijuana DUI arrest testing in Nevada:
Legislative Counsel’s Digest:
1 Existing law provides that it is unlawful for any person to drive or be in actual
2 physical control of a vehicle on a highway or on premises to which the public has
3 access if the person is under the influence of a controlled substance or has certain
4 specified amounts of a prohibited substance in his or her blood or urine, including
5 marijuana and marijuana metabolite. (NRS 484C.110) Section 1 of this bill
6 removes the specified amounts of marijuana and marijuana metabolite in a person’s
7 urine, thereby providing that the amount of marijuana or marijuana metabolite in a
8 person’s system can only be measured through his or her blood. Sections 2 and 6
9 of this bill make the same changes to similar provisions of existing law relating to a
10 person driving or being in actual physical control of a commercial motor vehicle on
11 a highway or on premises to which the public has access or operating or being in
12 actual physical control of a vessel under power or sail on the waters of this State,
13 respectively. Sections 3-5 and 7-17 of this bill make conforming changes.
