New impaired driving laws have kicked in across the province.
The main changes impact young and novice drivers of any age.
Sergeant Kevin Martin with the OPP says most people know you can’t drink and drive, but as of July first if police suspect you have been smoking weed, they can suspend your license for a year.
Martin with the OPP says this is to try and deter people from operating a vehicle while under the influence.
Martin says with cannabis legalization set for this fall it will make things a little tricky for officers.
Right now he says they use field sobriety tests and drug recognition officers to determine if drivers are impaired by either alcohol or drugs.
