Why wouldn't there be the same recourse as now? Impaired driving is impaired driving. You can't drink in public, why don't we apply the same law to pot?
Whether you're impaired by an illegal substance or a legal one is a separate issue. In any case, studies in other areas show that legalization would cause a temporary spike as people try the new product followed by leveling off and even decreasing consumption. Holland's consumption is far below America's per capita usage.
