Drugged driving

Local - 4/3/2013 6:08 PM
CHARLESTON - The House of Delegates passes a bill Wednesday designed to crack down on drugged driving in the Mountain State.  Now drivers can have their license revoked for refusing to take a blood test, just as they can for refusing to take a breath test.  Although the bill passed 72 to 26, opponents expressed concerns that it was pushed through too quickly without enough research.  Delegate Larry Faircloth of Berkeley County voted against the bill, saying that he fears senior citizens who are on medication could unfairly lose their licenses as a result.  He also says the bill does not clearly define what constitutes impairment for certain drugs.
