How will states with legalized marijuana test for weed DUIs?

Post Author:

With more and more states legalizing marijuana for medical purposes, and two for recreational use, the topic of THC-induced DUI's is becoming a hot topic. That's to say, how can police test a driver for being high? Without a tried and true(?) method like the breathalizer test, what will become the standard, and how accurate these tests are, remain up in the air.

This recent infographic from Denmon and Denmon Trial Attorneys attempts to break down the options, none of which seem too reliable. Especially considering THC can last in your system up to one week after use for even the lightest of smokers (or eaters). While it might not provide encouraging numbers, this infographic should prove useful for anyone with a pending drug test or interstate travel plans.
