    The people that test for pot in the bloodstream don't know it can be there a week later, you better go inform them so they can get their study right.

    I'm sure they know. They've just done nothing to properly sort the data to try to figure out of that percentage who was actually high at the time of the crash. It's not a data set, it's not properly analysed, the statistics have not been borne out. The number that test positive is relatively useless because it does not say the number under the influence at the time of the accident. That's the true number you need.

    Not properly analyzing data is the backbone of propaganda.

    Doesn't mean the driver wasn't high either.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    True, but then you have a null factor. A number that means relatively nothing to the arguments being made.
