THC driving: Schedule I and II drugs out, bill again focused entirely on pot

Senator Steve King's proposed THC driving bill is headed to the state senate floor, probably tomorrow. To clear its path, language that would have established a zero tolerance policy for all Schedule I and II drugs was stripped out Friday. As such, the proposal is very similar to one shelved in 2011 -- not that it's necessarily doomed to the same fate.
