    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.
    Yep, that's what I thought. Technically under the influence means nothing.

    Let's see it.

    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.
    Lol. First paragraph from the article you linked.

    The effects of smoking marijuana fade quickly, but the drug, known affectionately as "weed," can be detected in the body for weeks and sometimes longer

    Clearly you have never raced. You want to be on a track with people that are using? Or drunk? I raced NHRA Div 2 for over 20 years. We got rid of more than one "party boy" that thought it was OK to smoke alittle weed or have a beer between rounds.

    Redneck posturing aside, that's beside the point. I am questioning the science behind the DAs statement. Actually, I was hoping an accurate test had been developed that I was unaware of. But at this point I've seen no evidence of it.

    Okay. Tell that to the judge if you're charged and fail the test.

    I would. And I would be correct. Why are you arguing such a silly point? Wouldn't you want an honest, fair, accurate test? Or are you one of these control freaks that thinks weed smokers should be locked up?

    So you think everyone in this country who is charged with driving under the influence of drugs can just say "screw you", and the judge says "okay"? Interesting.

    I'm a weed smoker myself, an advocate of making pot legal, and have posted those very statements at least 100 times on this board. You should probably know something about the poster before you accuse him/her of something that isn't true.

    You should have kept reading.

    Also from the same link...

    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.
    What I said was 100% accurate. A blood test, like the one given to Ward post mortem, can determine if the person is currently under the influence. Why are you having such a hard time grasping this?

    How did this thread get so terribly off track, and how can we get back to the subject at hand?
