SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) – Recreational marijuana use may now be legal in California, but it is still illegal to drive while high.
That was the message San Diego hoped to send Thursday night at a checkpoint targeting drivers who may have been under the influence of pot.
A DUI check point was set up off Mission Bay Drive, right by the Interstate-5 south bound ramp.
San Diego police debuted the tool in March of last year.
The DUI check point was scheduled to start at 11 p.m., Thursday night and go to Friday at 3 a.m.
