Here too Teutone, and they call it DUI here. DWI is/was driving while intoxicated and I guess that covers more than alcohol as well.

Greg's point was that what quantifiable level constitutes "a little" or "too much", just like the blood alcohol legal limits that exist today?

^^^^^

The pigs here I think do swab tests on sweat if they suspect DUI with drugs. It is a contentious issue expressly since there is no prescribed limit and MJ is detectable for upto thirty days after consumption.

Interesting DR, so we sweat enough out to be detected or measured? I know that when we used to get tanked on beer, it seemed like we were sweating that away (and consequently smelled like it), but I never thought about drugs coming out that way. Urine and blood I knew about, and some of the drugs leave residue in hair for a LONG time, especially if you wear it long.

Live and learn I guess, and thanks for the heads up.

That's part of my point and one of the things that bothers me so much. Someone who is otherwise leading a productive life that relaxes at home with the stuff on the weekend doesn't concern me at all. So then they're driving, 3 or 4 days later, maybe 2 or 3 weeks later, pulled over or involved in an accident, cops run the check, find the trace and they're charged with DUI. Although we're supposedly innocent until proven guilty, the body has just offered testimony that the driver is guilty, now the driver has to prove -- by incriminating him/herself -- that while they ingested illegal drugs, it wasn't within a time frame meaningful to the incident. I'd think that is not an easy thing to prove. Not to mention the cannabis trace is probably enough to get a warrant, and after they tear through the abode, lockers at work/school/gym and of course the car (which is probably impounded as evidence) and if they find any more MJ, the charges now escalate and the DUI charge becomes almost irrelevant.

Of course the other side of the coin is that even if technology is able to achieve a simple, easy test, then there will have to be some sort of standardized testing to demonstrate what is a "safe" level (I'd supposed cannabis has more of a 'half-life' rather than flushing from the system pretty quickly like alcohol) vs. what confirms under the influence.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
