Marijuana leaf

WASHINGTON - A number of central Washington counties have announced an emphasis in patrols for this Saturday, April 20. 

Chelan, Douglas, Kittitas and Okanogan counties will be holding extra patrols looking for drunk and drugged drivers, but will enforce all traffic laws. 

Police say the goal is not to apprehend impaired drivers but to prevent people from driving impaired in the first place. 

They say whether you smoke, eat or vape marijuana, it may lead you to becoming impaired.
