    What a great concept; the difference between impairment testing and drug testing. I agree that medical marijuana users are at risk for being unfairly judged as under the influence and therefore a car accident was their fault. Until we change many of the policies concerning marijuana and DUI arrests, we will continue to be at risk while driving.

    Finally, generalized Impairment Testing… this is truely the best and only way to test for impairment to ensure fairness & equality for everyone; because there are so many different things that can be qualified as impairment as mentioned in the video, the best example I liked to hear mentioned was the prescription drugs because nearly all of them list either dizziness or drowsiness.
    The other fact that was not mentioned was when drug testing was invented and intended to monitor and persecute substance abusers, it’s not for the health-related reasons as they claim; this is just another way to INVADE OUR PRIVACY. Plus they are making millions of dollars off all the drug testing permitted and required from businesses, employment, schooling, sports activities, and of coarse the military.
    This is where the impairment testing can really benefit to all, instead of targeting certain people or groups of people with specific backgrounds.

    Good concept. Fun to watch. It’s interesting that impairment can always be left to the discretion of the officer.

    This is very very true, and an example of how the laws and practices of drug enforcement will have to adapt beyond the simple act of legalization. If we are going to take marijuana use seriously as a society, we are going to have to create and redefine the legislation that surrounds it. I firmly believe that an “impairment test” is the only accurate way to ascertain a person’s ability to drive a vehicle. Unfortunately, there is no way currently available to standardize these tests without the variable of subjectivity.
