An Arizona appeals court has ruled that marijuana users don’t need to be actually impaired to be successfully prosecuted for driving under the influence. The ruling came Tuesday in the case of a man who tested positive for an inactive marijuana metabolite that remains in the body for weeks after the high from smoking marijuana has worn off.

The ruling in Arizona v. Shilgevorkyan overturned a decision by a superior court judge who said that it didn’t make sense to prosecute people for driving under the influence if they’re not actually under the influence.

blink.gif That's crazy. Being tired in traffic is a greater danger than being stoned imo, especially being stoned weeks ago. chuckle.gif

I've been stoned since I was 13. ğck 'em.

They can't force you to submit to the test. You just get your license suspended and they will try to prosecute, but they can't with no evidence... So, worse case scenario.... You get your license suspended for 1 year and they may make you go to AA or Alcohol and drug treatment.

Just refuse the test.

I don't know how they test that in the US, but here they have this quick swab test that proved to give so many false positives that you can refuse to take it without any consequences...Unless you're involved in an accident of course.

Usually swab test, but sometimes, if you consent or it's an accident, you get blood draw. Just refuse the test.
