Dear Kelly Swanson
We have the CPRA request you filed through MuckRock on March 13, 2017, seeking all arrest reports for driving under the influence of marijuana offenses in 2014, 2015, and 2016. As it is written, the request is too broad to provide you with meaningful information. We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss Vehicle Code 23152 and how citations are issued.
Could you call during regular business hours, 8-5, Monday - Friday?
Thank you.

Re: California Public Records Act (CPRA) Request, dated March 13, 2017

Dear Kelly Swanson:

The Department of California Highway Patrol (Department) has reviewed your request for public records pursuant to the California Public Records Act (CPRA) (Gov. Code, § 6250 et seq.), dated March 13, 2017.

In your request, you asked for the following:

· All arrest reports for driving under the influence of marijuana offenses that took place between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2016.

The Department is determining whether you seek copies of disclosable public records in the Department's possession. This will require Department staff from the Office of Community Outreach and Media Relations to search for, collect, and appropriately examine a voluminous amount of separate and distinct records that are required in a single request. Department staff will also be required to search for and collect the requested records from field facilities that are separate from the office processing the request. This search is further complicated by the nonspecific nature of your request, as described in an email to you on Monday, March 20, 2017. Accordingly, the Department is extending its 10-day response timeframe by an additional 14 days, as authorized by Government Code section 6253, subdivision (c).

On or before Friday, April 7, 2017, the Department will notify you of its determination regarding this request.

In the meantime, please feel free to contact this office to help us better understand the request.

Sincerely,

F. CLADER
Director of Communications
