Is there a roadside test for impairment?

Niagara Falls, Ontario - Monday, December 16, 2002 - by: Joe Hueglin


Those of us with more concern for the safety of society than the ability of individuals to satisfy their wants have two questions which must be definitely answered : can the ability of those driving vehicles be impaired by the use of marijuana; if so, is there a roadside administerable test courts will accept as evidence of impairment?




The answer to the first question would seem to be yes in that


"the federal government has submitted documents claiming that marijuana use is connected to increased likelihood of cancer, automobile accidents, psychiatric problems and drug addiction" 1


to the Supreme Court. This being so, the answer to the second must be affirmative as well if society is to be protected
