I-Team: Outdated Law Thwarts Prosecution of Some Drugged Drivers

According to the Institute for Traffic Safety Management, from 2007 to 2011, drugged driving arrests went up nearly 20 percent in the state, from 3,310 to 3,970, while drunk driving arrests went down 15 percent, from 45,829 to 39,164.
