    Pretty much as long as its in your system, you are subject to intoxication.
    Bottom line is the little brat was a hot head pot head.

    The DA is tasked with upholding the laws that are handed to him. He isn't there to judge - just apply the law.

    And it's possible that Ward had smoked as long as 3 weeks prior. But if the amount contained in his blood or whatever they tested exceeded the legal limit as set forth by the state, then technically he was under the influence.

    If you smoke a bowl or a joint or "whatever" there is a test that can accurately determine the level of THC in your bloodstream.

    It hard to tell if its enforceable. But most tracks have you sign a release once you enter.

    I think you are arguing with Cheech Marin or Tommy Chong. He refuses to see the issue.

    I thought it was only about three weeks, but yeah.

    If I were on the jury, they'd get zero. IMO, the incident was 100% Ward's fault.

    Sorry, that made me giggle.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    You are wrong.

    How Long Does Marijuana Stay in the Body?

    Because marijuana stays in the bloodstream for a short time, blood tests for marijuana are usually not used, except in the case of automobile accidents and some roadside sobriety check points. Blood or saliva tests can show current intoxication. However, unlike blood alcohol concentration tests, they do not indicate a level of intoxication or impairment.
    A blood test can show current intoxication but not the LEVEL of intoxication. The testing done showed that Ward was high when he climbed into that race car. And like I said before, you can sit here and split hairs over HOW high he was but at this point.... what's the point.

I have no idea how they physically do these tests but I doubt it holds up in court based on "best guess".
    There is a blood test for THC similar to the blood alcohol test. It is not quite as reliable as the alcohol test...however they can quantify "enough to be impaired".
