As mentioned previously none of the devices thus far developed are able to gauge the current level of impairment of the user being tested. If a device will provide a positive result when someone has even trace amounts of THC in their blood or breath then even the most casual users or people who live with or near regular smokers would be likely to trigger false positive results.
From what is currently understood about portable roadside testing units no current technology exists that can reliably determine if someone is too stoned to drive. That certainly won’t keep law enforcement, concerned government agencies, helicopter parents and other control freaks from trying their hardest. It’s good to see a lot of money and effort wasted on a solution without a problem seeing as there is not a major social issue involving impaired drivers on cannabis and never has been. People have been smoking and driving for many decades before cannabis was ever legalized for recreational use and it has not prompted the same level of concern until lately.
There is a good reason why roadside testing and these technologies are so sought after. Without the ability to hassle drivers, citizens and employees about what they do on their private time quotas for tickets and prosecutions will fall. When cannabis was stricltly illegal it was a great entry point into starting a search or an arrest of a suspect based solely on the smell or suspicion of cannabis use.
Now that law enforcement cannot rely on cannabis as a marker of a potential suspect or target they are scrambling for a new surefire method to be able to search your vehicle or your person. Make no mistake about it – they will dress it up under the guise of protecting the public. When “protection” is thrust upon the people by an authority that thinks they know better than them it tends not to work out well.
