Bill protects from cannabis smoke

California lawmakers are pushing a bill to protect drivers of party buses and limousines from the effects of second-hand cannabis smoke.

State Senator Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo) has introduced Senate Bill 625, which would require buses, limousines and cabs that allow cannabis use to provide drivers with a sealed, separate ventilated space. Drivers who test positive for marijuana could lose their commercial license.

It is illegal for passengers or drivers to smoke pot in vehicles on a state highway, but California law has exemptions for passengers of buses, taxis and limousines. This is a loophole lawmaker want to close, according to CBS Sacramento.
