Dr. Robert DuPont, president of the Institute for Behavior and Health, gave lawmakers suggestions to help prevent drug-impaired driving.

DuPont recommended that states implement a zero-tolerance policy for drivers under the age of 21, hand down the same penalties for drugged driving as for drunk driving and impose additional penalties for those who are impaired by multiple substances.
Don't get this...

Why zero-tolerance policy for ONLY drivers under the age of 21? Why not zero-tolerance policy for ANYONE found driving drunk or drugged?*

*Other than the Townie "fact" that our jails/prisons are already full of only innocent drug abusers. :rolleyes:
