have been in some bars in missouri, back in the 90's, what had these pill packets that would allegedly knock your alcohol level down .
i have no idea how, or, if that worked, but assuming it did, you'd think there's a reasonable facsimile to counter this .


I don't see how this test proves impairment. As we've all known forever, you can have it in your system and not be under the influence because it takes a long time to exit the body. For people like myself that use it daily, it is always going to be in the system. Fortunately, I've never seen a DUI checkpoint in my part of Oregon.

i don't know, perhaps the swab is just a indicator, a blood test would be next??

I still don't understand what they are going to be able to detect in the blood that indicates that someone is actually under the influence. It is my understanding that it stays in the blood much longer.

This is taken from WedMD: "In general, blood testing for marijuana (THC) is performed to measure impairment, such as in driving while under the influence cases. Some experts say marijuana is detectable in the blood for up to a week among regular smokers."

So if that is true, a person that tokes daily could take a couple days off and still test as being under the influence. And there is no way to prove one way or the other whether that person took a break or not. It sounds like a good lawyer could be necessary.

Our minister even confirmed when asked by a reporter if people not currently impaired could lose their licence. It's a joke.

That is one fucked up article. What kind of bullshit test have they come up with that proves that just because THC is still in your system you are still impaired by it?

It is bullshit but it seems it is a common enough test 'worldwide'. It is the Drager Drug Test 5000. Here is a FAQ produced by the Gardaí (Irish police):

I find it hard to believe that it can only detect cannabis use for 6 hours after use. I don't trust that machine. I'm so glad that Oregon and Washington don't have DUI checkpoints. I''ve been driving under the influence of weed since I was a teenager and I know that my driving skills are just as good stoned as not.
