They spoke about the dangers and consequences of drugged driving.

“The argument I make, relentlessly, to the social circles of young people that I run into with my job and through my son is if you’ve had anything, any kind of THC in your system you shouldn’t be driving. If you had half a beer, you shouldn’t be driving,” Hickenlooper said.

NHTSA Deputy Heidi King also spoke of Colorado’s prevention and enforcement efforts since recreational marijuana was legalized.
