It may soon be easier for prosecutors to convict people caught driving under the influence of drugs. State Senator Lou Correa [[ core-RAY-ah ]] has introduced a zero-tolerance drugged DUI measure.

Medical marijuana advocates say the law should test the level of impairment, since marijuana can stay in a one’s system for weeks.
