O'VILLE POLICE BOARD IMPLEMENTS POLICY FOR HOW OFFICERS WILL DETERMINE IF A DRIVER IS HIGH 3/7/2018 9:01:52 AM
Orangeville Police Service (OPS) is preparing for marijuana legalization later this year.
Smoking pot is expected to become legal across Canada sometime this summer.
The police services board recently implemented new policy for frontline officers who suspect a driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol.
Sergeant Mary Lou Archer says all Orangeville officers will go through training to be able to recognize high drivers.
OPS will have two drug recognition experts and they will follow a 12-step evaluation process to determine if someone is impaired by drugs.
The Senate plans to vote on the cannabis bill on or before June 7. Provincial governments would then need eight to 12 weeks to prepare, which would delay legalization until possibly August.
