It’s a pretty shocking admission, the feds don’t know what the right level of THC is to determine that someone is driving stoned.
We are a week away from pot being legal and we still haven’t figured this out?
I’ve been saying for sometime now that the legalization of pot would be a disaster. This latest admission proves it.
This isn’t some anti-pot, reefer madness statement. This is looking at how the legislation is written and how this is being rolled out.
How can we be a week away and have the justice minister saying “it depends” when asked at what level someone is impaired on cannabis while driving?
Jody Wilson-Raybould made the comments in an interview with Global’s The West Block on Sunday.
“It depends on a case-by-case basis,” she said.
“Police officers have the opportunity to go through a series of tests. They can conduct standard field sobriety tests. We are training drug recognition experts to be able to determine whether or not they are of the view, or see probable grounds, that someone is impaired by drugs, and can build the probable grounds to take a blood sample to determine whether someone has been impaired by drugs.”
