Cannabis sales are ahead of expectations in Vermont but smoking weed behind the wheel continues to be a concern. Unlike some other states, Vermont does not have a legal, quantifiable amount of cannabis in your body that permits you to drive or conversely guarantees you a DUI in the same way that there are BAC rules for alcohol. Under Vermont law, it is illegal to consume cannabis and drive. Vermont State Police say they have had more than 60 calls since October where cannabis was involved relating to DUIs, motor vehicle complaints and crashes. It is also illegal to use cannabis as a passenger in any sort of operating vehicle.
