Re: "Give false positives 30% of the time"?
actually i double checked and it's 15% not 30%. which is far less, but still way too high a percentage of course. But yeah, the first guy who gets charged with a DUI under that system is gonna have a field day in court if they have that much wiggle room. But I don't even know if that will happen, since the vast majority agrees that these tests don't work. I saw a couple articles saying police departments are just going to wait until better drug testing products come on the market. And that will happen since the legalisation means cannabis research is going to explode (and that's something that has implications reaching far beyond roadside tests).
The first stoned driving ticket was already issued, only an hour after legalisation no less. But that was a dude openly smoking in his car while driving, so that's a more cut and dry case.
>>how much trouble you get in for driving stoned will depend on how much of an asshole the cop who stopped you is, whether they've had a bad day etc
yeah seems to be the case. We're going to get a lot of drivers pretending to be sober when they get pulled over. Not that that wasn't already happening.
