Smoking CBD is not illegal for the courts of Albertville!

What are the risks of being caught by the police under the influence of CBD while driving a car? For the Albertville police, none!

Driving under the influence of drugs can lead to severe penalties, this is nothing new! Be tested positive for cannabis can also be a bad idea to keep your license. But then, what about CBD? Longer known as cannabidiol, CBD contains the same molecules, in smaller quantities, than cannabis.

Thus, it is not so rare to learn that drivers have tested positive for a cannabis consumption screening test, even though they have only consumed CBD! And yet, the consumption of this substance is not illegal. A real legal vagueness, which leads to very different situations depending on the case. Recently, it is the justice of Albertville who intervened on the question. She felt that a driver under the influence of CBD was in his right!

Is CBD while driving prohibited or not?

The story is all in all quite banal. A strangely behaving driver is arrested by the national police of Albertville. Why strange? He was driving particularly fast and when the police pulled him over, a strong smell of cannabis emanated from his car. By consulting the national driver’s license file, the agents find that his license had already been canceled in 2019. This sanction was pronounced after he was caught driving under the influence of narcotics on several occasions.

And once more ! This driver has not learned the lesson: he is starting to drive again under the influence of drugs. Except it’s not really about cannabis, but rather CBD. But it would also seem that the driver in question went so far as to smoke while driving. It was at the Albertville courthouse that the decision was made whether to sanction him or not. And the court’s response was clear: the driver was released! Because for the judges, it was not not illegal to smoke cbd while driving.

A real legal vagueness around the CBD

Thus, questions and legal vagueness continue around the CDB. The problem is that consuming this substance is not in itself illegal. But he must have u0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content at most, compared to about 15% in cannabis. Thus, it is not impossible to be caught by the police during a screening if this level is exceeded.

Thus, the decisions to punish or not to punish motorists taken under the influence of this substance are very heterogeneous. A decision opposite to that taken at the Albertville courthouse was, for example, adopted in 2021, in New Aquitaine, reports France 3 Regions. A business manager had then been surprised to be condemned by the Court of Justice for having smoked CBD while driving!
