Rabb: Outdated State Laws Punish Innocent Pennsylvanians

As a consumer of legal medical cannabis himself, Pa. state Rep. Chris Rabb is working to ensure that innocent Pennsylvanians aren’t wrongfully prosecuted under current, outdated DUI laws. He shares this testimony from “Annie,” who asked to remain anonymous, because it echoes the concerns of many Pennsylvanians. As things stand, a legal user of medical cannabis can take a small amount of medicine and weeks later, with traces of cannabis still in their system, be subject to arrest on a DUI charge if pulled over by law enforcement — not because they’ve driven impaired, but because state laws haven’t caught up with the science.
