Cannabis tourism is an industry that has grown from the legalization of marijuana in California. Now lawmakers are pushing a bill to protect drivers of party buses and limousines from the effects of second-hand cannabis smoke.

State Senator Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo) has introduced Senate Bill 625, which would require buses, limousines, and cabs that allow cannabis use to provide drivers with a sealed, separate ventilated space. Drivers who test positive for marijuana could lose their commercial license.

“Just like you wouldn’t pour alcohol on a driver, we wouldn’t blow smoke in the driver’s face. We want them to be safe. It’s the same thing with a cannabis tour.”
