Police say current drugged-driving laws are stopping them from arresting suspected “high” drivers.
That’s because if someone is under the influence of a drug not an official list of banned substances, they can’t charge them.
Drug dealers keep changing the makeup of so-called sythetic drugs staying ahead of the laws and creating headaches for law enforcement.
There is a proposal in Albany, though, that would give police the power to charge someone with drugged-driving, even if the drug they’re on isn’t on the official list.
Dozens of other states across the country have already passed similar legislation.
