Commission: Michigan should not set THC limit for motorists

LANSING (AP) — A state commission says Michigan should not set a legal limit for how much of marijuana's active ingredient motorists can have in their system.

The Impaired Driving Safety Commission recently forwarded its findings to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Legislature after spending nearly two years studying how marijuana affects drivers.

The Lansing State Journal reports the panel recommended that Michigan set no limit for the amount of marijuana's active ingredient is in a motorist's blood.

The commission's report says levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, in a person's blood are not a "reliable indicator" of whether they're impaired.

The panel instead recommended that the state continue to use roadside sobriety tests to determine if a driver is impaired.

Michigan approved medical marijuana use in 2008, and recreational marijuana use last year.

U of Michigan to upgrade historic Detroit Observatory

ANN ARBOR (AP) — The University of Michigan has plans to upgrade the second-oldest building on the Ann Arbor campus.

The Ann Arbor News reports the university's Board of Regents has approved the design for a $10 million upgrade to the Detroit Observatory. The building was constructed in 1854 as the school's first dedicated scientific research lab. The project includes a classroom addition, reception area, storage and a new elevator. Construction is scheduled to be done in fall 2020.

The building has had previous additions in 1868 and 1908. It was restored in 1999. The university says it's the oldest remaining observatory in the U.S. to have its original telescopes from the 1850s in working condition and on their original mounts. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
