Letters: California must set a limit for THC while driving

Re “Recreational marijuana is legal in California, but stoned driving is still hard to detect” (sacbee.com, Jan. 21): California lags again in protecting its citizens because of its inability to commit. Several other states have limits on THC in a blood test, but California can’t decide. Because California chooses to listen to Dr. Feelgood from the “Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research.” Certainly, there is variation in intoxication among different persons, as there is with alcohol, but the state has settled on 0.08 as the limit for alcohol. The same can be done with THC. Driving is a privilege, not a right.
