Marijuana Breathalyzer Test Could Be Near
Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
One of the problems with medical marijuana, at least from cops' perspective, is that pot is hard to detect in the field, and many drivers could be getting away with DUI because they're high but not drunk. Nearly one-third of fatal California crashes involve drugged drivers.
The problem inspired one California legislator to propose a law that would trigger a DUI case for anyone whose blood test shows even a trace of cannabis in their system. That could be problematic if you're a medical patient who toked yesterday but was stopped by police today.
Even worse: A pot breathalyzer might be on the horizon:
Researchers in Sweden recently discovered that marijuana and even cocaine and meth could be detected by a roadside breathalyzer test. (Sort of -- see more below).
Not just any breathalyzer, either:
The academics from Karolinska Institute in Stockholm used a "commercially available breath sampler" called SensAbues and successfully ID'd 12 substances on the breath of some of the 40 volunteers they examined, according to a summary.

Colorado legislature gives final approval to historic marijuana bill
Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, May, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
The Colorado legislature on Wednesday gave final approval to a bill asking voters to impose taxes on recreational marijuana, inching the state legislature closer to becoming the first in the country to pass laws regulating recreational pot.
The state Senate approved the tax measure and another one spelling out rules for marijuana stores and then sent both to the House on Wednesday morning. The House quickly passed House Bill 1318, the bill on marijuana taxes, and sent it to the governor. House members will now take up the second measure.
Sen. Mark Scheffel, R-Parker, said on the Senate floor there could be some "bounce back-and-forth" between the two chambers during the final day of the session.
The Senate's votes Wednesday morning came with little discussion. One day after lengthy debates on both bills, only Scheffel stood to speak about the bills on Wednesday.
