Colo. Cops Say They'll Draw Blood If They Suspect You're Driving High -- Refuse The Test And You'll "Lose Your License Longer" Than If Convicted Of DUI

Despite voters moving to loosen pot prohibition in the state of Colorado, the political class is moving to imprison all those who take part in their new found freedom, creating a new regime of law enforcement which may be even worse than before.
Under state law, police who suspect you of driving high can forcibly draw your blood to test the levels of THC within it, if you refuse to let them stab their way into your bloodstream, they'll suspend your license for even "longer" than if you were convicted of a DUI.
The reality is drivers high on marijuana drive perfectly fine as shown in the viral news report below. Of course, the same can't be said of many legal prescription drugs, which you are permitted to be intoxicated on while driving. Additionally, you can jack yourself up on as much caffeine and assorted uppers as you'd like.
The fact is, reckless driving is already a crime. Some people can drive fine high or intoxicated, others cannot. It's the endangering of other peoples' lives that's the criminal act, not having a substance in your bloodstream.
P.S. If you want to see the absolute horror of what it looks like when cops forcibly draw peoples' blood watch this video.
