Tests for Driving While Impaired by Marijuana Have No Scientific Basis AAA Study Says
Six states that allow marijuana use have legal tests to determine driving while impaired by the drug that have no scientific basis, according to a study by the nation's largest automobile club that calls for scrapping those laws.
The study commissioned by AAA's safety foundation said it's not possible to set a blood-test threshold for THC, the chemical in marijuana that makes people high, that can reliably determine impairment. Yet the laws in five of the six states automatically presume a driver guilty if that person tests higher than the limit, and not guilty if it's lower.
As a result, drivers who are unsafe may be going free while others may be wrongly convicted, the foundation said.
Royal Kush (Hybrid)
Royal Kush, a cross between the famous Skunk #1 and oh-so-potent Afghani, is an Indica-dominant strain favored by patients with such ailments as insomnia, loss of appetite, pain relief, inflammation, nausea and anxiety. This bud appears to be infested with sticky tri-chromes, with orange and electric-white pistils. It also has a pungently danky, fruity, skunky and earthy aroma.

Juicy Fruit (Hybrid)
Juicy Fruit is a sweet smelling strain of Thai origin that is usually bright green in color with lots of purple and orange hairs embedded into the bud. Juicy Fruit smells most strongly of fruit punch and lemons, and when the bud is ground up it releases a very strong skunky smell. The taste of Juicy Fruit is surprisingly less fruity than one might expect, leaning more towards creamy flavors like pina colada and vanilla. The high produced by this strain has a lot to do with its popularity. The most immediate effect of Juicy Fruit is a floating feeling that is a little psychedelic. This is a good strain to share with friends because it makes one feel very uplifted, giggly, and chatty. Juicy Fruit has a clean come down with no lingering after effects and would be a good choice for patients suffering from depression, anxiety, mild pain relief and those in need of a creative boost.
