Minnesota officers on the lookout for drivers high on marijuana

(Minneapolis, MN) -- Minnesota officers will be on the lookout for drivers who are high on marijuana.

Officers say they're bracing for the legalization of marijuana on August 1st by having an awareness campaign.

The campaign reminds drivers that ingesting cannabis products while driving is illegal and law enforcement will be on alert for drug impaired drivers.

Officials say the state plans to certify up to 100 officers as drug recognition evaluators in the next year.

Officials say Drug recognition evaluators have the ability to recognize the signs, symptoms, and physiology of somebody who is under the influence of something other than alcohol.
