Professor Offers “Stoned Driving App” to Massachusetts Police

Category: News | Posted on Sun, November, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Now that Massachusetts voters have legalized recreational marijuana, there’s still no simple way for law enforcement to test if someone is too stoned to drive.

“You have to prosecute the person based on the officer’s observations and what the officer found during the car stop,” William G. Brooks, president of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, told the Boston Globe. “It makes it very difficult.”

For that reason, University of Massachusetts psychology professor Michael Milburn is offering law enforcement an app that he funded and created to test for marijuana impairment.

Milburn calls his app DRUID, an acronym for “driving under the influence of drugs.” It is a tablet-based app in which users are asked to perform a series of tasks in five minutes.

I Remember the first time I smoked OG Kush,” chef Holden Jagger says. “I thought it tasted like Mexican food.” 

The 32-year-old chef is prepping for a dinner party, perched over the stove browning pears in a cast iron pan slick with duck fat. It's a familiar task for Jagger, who spent six years — under the name Holden Burkons; he now uses his middle name, Jagger, as his last — working pastry stations under chef Tom Colicchio at Craft and Curtis Stone at Maude, as well as a long stint at Soho House, the members-only celebrity haunt on Sunset Boulevard. The smell of marijuana lingers in the kitchen, left over from cold-smoking shallots with a cannabis variety called In the Pines, which the chef cultivates in his garden partly for its strong notes of citrus, apple and, yes, pine.
