Amend the bill, as and if amended, on page 28, Section 44-53-2230(B), by striking lines 36 through 40 and inserting:

/ (B)Nothing in this article may be construed to prevent the arrest or prosecution of a qualifying patient for reckless driving or driving under the influence of cannabis products if probable cause exist s. The mere presence of cannabis metabolites shall not automatically deem a person under the influence. If a qualified patient refuses to submit to a blood sample test, as provided in Section 56-5-2950, then the qualified patient's privilege to drive is suspended for at least six months and his registry identification card is revoked. The qualified patient has the right to request a contested case hearing within thirty days of the issuance of the notice of suspension. If the person does not request a contested case hearing or if the qualified patient's suspension is upheld at the contested case hearing, then the qualified patient shall enroll in an Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program. /
