Ontario to Toughen Penalties For Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana

Ontario will have a “zero tolerance” policy toward young drivers and truckers who use marijuana.

Premier Kathleen Wynne on Monday said those 21 and under, commercial drivers, and novice motorists will face stiffer penalties if caught behind the wheel while under the influence of cannabis or booze.

Following the lead of eight U.S. states that have legalized marijuana — including Colorado, Washington, and California — Wynne said road safety will be a priority once recreational weed is allowed after next July 1.
