Driving and Marijuana

Consistent users have an increased tolerance. Oklahoma, Colorado and California have the most dispensarys. The detection process starts when an officer sees abnormal or illegal driving conduct. When Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Intoxicated, a Drug Recognition Officer will likely be called and use a 12 step process to evaluate the impairment of a suspect.

  1. Breath Alcohol Test: the roadside test used if suspected alcohol impairment
  2. Interview of the Arresting Officer
  3. Preliminary examination, pulse.
  4. Eye Examination: Nystagmus, Lack of Convergence
  5. Divided Attention/Psychophysical Tests: Modified Romberg Test, One Legged Stand, Finger to nose test.
  6. Vital Signs, Pulse
  7. Dark Room Examination: Pupilometer,
  8. Examination for muscle tone of suspect
  9. Checking for injection sites
  10. Suspects statements and other observations
  11. Analysis and opinions of the evaluator
  12. Toxicological Examination

The Toxicological Examination:

What is the toxicological laboratory doing with the Urine, blood or other DNA? They are using a screening test with antibodies. If there is a positive on the first test they are supposed to do a second test to confirm their original results. A utilization of Mass Spectrum THC follows with a liquid chromatography test. THC remains in your system for 30 days after use, that is a general rule but depends on your metabolism.
