I think a pretty good test for THC levels would to rapidly move a picture of a cat superimposed over a rainbow spiral towards and away from a suspect's face.  Depending on how far back they stagger and how long the "Whoooaaa" afterwards was, you could determine how high a suspect is.

Seriously, though, just don't smoke and drive! Why run the risk?

TFA: In the first six months with pot legal in the state, 745 drivers stopped by police tested positive for the drug's psychoactive ingredient

NO. Baaaaaaad reporter. NO.

Also: "Marijuana" is a made up word, and is racist as all hell. Please, please stop calling cannabis that.

And: THC can remain in one's system for 2-3 months after the last use. I know, as I've tested myself.

Silent But Deadly: I've noticed this in the last week as well (at several different web forums).  Maybe just co-incidence.

I work with a guy who recently got popped for driving stoned and has been going on about the man being after him because he was black.

Seems like he walked into a convenience store,bought a blunt, emptied on the sidewalk in front of the store, rolled it up in his car and lit it up before he left the parking lot, and a cop saw the entire thing.

Smoking nor drinking and driving is cool.

Churchill2004: snocone: There is more than just "THC" going on here. Basically, 3 different active compounds of interest, with different human aeffects

It's still a handy shorthand for "the active ingredients in marijuana" in common parlance. I also don't gripe about people referring to a "pencil lead" because it's really graphite.


It is time to spread the word, not just go w/ the derp.

Posted because:
(1). Might see an interesting argument here, though I've probably heard the pro and anti-pot arguments trillions of times.
(2). Maybe this here panda got a contact buzz from the thread and decided bamboo just ain't gonna quench those munchies.

mazzz: Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but I am under the impression that it's the *metabolites* that stay in the body for weeks/months. Typical drug tests are looking for those. If there is THC in the blood then you are probably under the influence.

Although I believe there is evidence that driving stoned is nowhere near as bad as driving drunk, and I seem to recall some suggestion that stoned drivers can actually perform better than sober drivers.


Please, be a tiny bit more accurate, or go learn the science. It has been repressed for nearly a century, but has managed to advance anyway.

The Christian Science Monitor has nothing to do with the Church of Christian Scientists - in fact, it's mission statement explicitly states that it will not be used to promote their views. It's actually one of the most respected news sources in the United States, and has a very notable habit of approaching topics neutrally and without bias and sensationalism.

If somebody is genuinely impaired to the point of posing a direct threat to his fellow drivers, that dickhead belongs in jail.

If somebody smoked a joint five days ago, I'm pretty sure his driving is no less worse than the other folks on the road who apparently are operating a motor vehicle for the very first time.

/maybe better
