Sheriff’s Deputies Remind Drivers DUI Doesn’t Mean Just Booze

St. Patrick’s Day is a time to wear green, eat corn beef and cabbage, and drink green beer. You may even pinch those who don’t play along. But don’t use the holiday as an excuse to smoke green substances like Marijuana to excess. Even though it’s legal in California, the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office says they have a zero tolerance policy for driving while under the influence, and you could be charged with a DUI. Marijuana significantly could slow your reaction time, impair coordination, and distort your perception. Save your pot of gold for the celebration, and not the expense associated with a DUI. Call a cab or get a ride from a designated driver.
