(ABC 6 News) – Drug use is on the rise across the country and there continues to be a strong push by liberal lawmakers to legalize the recreational use of marijuana in different states including Minnesota. Opponents of the legalization cite a lack of roadside testing capabilities to know if someone is under the influence while driving as a strong reason to not legalize the drug.

ABC 6 spoke with Republican Rochester Senator Dave Senjem on the new effort underway by state senators that could create a pilot project for drugged driving roadside testing.
