Police Use Roadside Pot Tests to Know if Someone is on Marijuana While Driving

Roadside Marijuana Tests
Beano, TSM

With the legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado, many are wondering just how police officers will be spotting those driving while under the influence of it. Apparently there will be a simple set of roadside tests that can be administered by law officers, and they should be able to differentiate between those high on pot vs. those under the influence of alcohol.

According to the Denver Post this is the list of tests that will be at the disposal of police who pull over people suspected of drinking or smoking and driving…or both.

  • Walk and turn
  • One-leg stand
  • Finger to nose
  • Appearance of eyes (red or watery)
  • Pupil size
  • How eyes track a moving object
  • Romberg test — maintaining balance with eyes closed
  • Estimation of 30 seconds

Doesn’t seem to high-tech, but I hope it works. Anyone who gets behind the wheel while severely under the influence of anything (alcohol, prescription drugs, narcotics, marijuana, etc.) Doesn’t deserve to be behind the wheel to begin with.

You have the right to drink around here, and now you have the right to get high, just please be safe while you’re doing it and don’t put yourself and the rest off us at risk on the roads.
