DUDE, LIKE, CAN YOU TELL HOW STONED I AM?
Why it matters to you? As legalization passes more and more frequently, lawmakers are struggling to find ways to accurately gauge how high someone is.
If anyone reading this has ever had any experiences with marijuana they’d know how varied the experience truly is. Did you smoke it? How did you smoke it? What form was it smoked in? What was the heat source? Etc, etc, etc it can go on forever trying to determine exactly how the marijuana was consumed to even begin to determine how it will affect you. Not to mention that everyone on earth has, much like alcohol, different tolerance levels and much of this is based on genetics. So how does one go about even beginning to develop a machine to judge this? These are some of the reasons that scientists’ minds are boggled when trying to figure this out.
The main reason for their issues is trying to determine these levels for a reliable and accurate DUI field test. Police can bring those in question to their station and draw blood to accurately determine THC levels the issue is the legal limit is, at this time, arbitrary and unsupported by science. Police officers are having to break ground and try new methods such as even gathering in a group in their plain clothes and smoking to see how it affects each of them then testing each other. While hopefully these tests will lead to an accurate test, with so many different complexities as to how marijuana affects each user it still seems a ways off before they will land on a field test to catch lawbreakers and keep the public safe from those driving intoxicated.
