Should they be allowed to be? Asking because there is a mouth swab test in UK and maybe even urine test
Yeh so let's say you have a medicinal licence, are you still allowed to get behind the wheel of a car, because if it becomes legal in the UK I can see a lot of people losing their licence as soon as they apply for a med card, because as it is, it's illegal to drive under the influence of x amount in your bloodStill not sure how to read the question. I told the under the influence part. If sober no issues. Or was it they test you for having med card over the pond?
a cop isn’t going to give u urine test that’s for sure ! And as far as the swab as long as your not smoking while driving your good let’s say u stopped smoked at the park and then finished your sesh and you jump back in the car to drive u get pulled over and u reack of weed cop will try pull out the swab I’m sure but with these swabs u can fight it in court there is no way they can see if u smoked now or 2 hours ago it’s not possible at least not with today’s tech so basically don’t get caught driving and smoking and there isn’t shit they can do
The police dynamics are so different compared to the states I can’t speak for how cops are there but in Michigan since it went legal put it this way I did get arrested on some bs and was on probation I had to do a urine test at random but because I had medical card for MJ they couldn’t say u can’thave this in your system because it’s a prescription!When we were teens we used to get pulled and if they smelt it they searched for the source if they didn't find it they let us go but as I got into 20's a new breed of cop came along and I heard stories of them searching (illegally i think) through phones and picking out dealers numbers etc
Everyone knows this is only a tech bulletin geared toward investors, right? They even say they have no saleable products and are only in the advanced prototype stage."
Cannabix Technologies Inc. is a leader in marijuana breathalyzer development for law enforcement and the workplace. Cannabix is actively developing breath testing technologies in the pursuit of bringing portable tools to market to enhance detection of marijuana impaired driving offences on roads at a time when marijuana is becoming legal in many jurisdictions globally. Cannabix is working to develop drug-testing devices that will detect ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol ('THC'- the psychoactive component of marijuana that causes intoxication) using breath samples. These devices would be used to provide detection of THC at roadside and identify drivers under the influence of marijuana.
Why Breath? - Peak Impairment
- Breath collection is easier to administer than other methods, is non-invasive, what law enforcement/public is used to, and can provide real-time results.
- Breath is a better indicator of impairment than saliva, blood, or urine because THC only remains in breath for short period of time (1-3 hours) before becoming virtually undetectable, whereas it can remain in other body fluids for many hours, days, or even weeks after smoking. This short time period of detection in breath aligns with the peak impairment window.
- None of the delays or complications involved with analysis laboratories
Cannabix is focused on developing breath testing devices for THC detection that would target recent use of THC, (within a 1 to 3 hour time period at time of testing) in contrast to saliva or urine testing for THC which can be invasive and take a considerable amount of time for laboratory analysis. The devices will also be useful for other practical applications such as testing employees in the workplace where intoxication by THC can be hazardous. "
