Looks like the dominoes are falling,The top cop for the Indiana State Police on Tuesday advised a group of state lawmakers that marijuana be legalized and taxed.Speaking at a budget committee meeting, Superintendent Paul Whitesell noted that both Colorado and Washington had decriminalized small amounts of the drug for recreational use.“It’s here, it’s going to stay, there’s an awful lot of victimization that goes with it,” Whitesell said, according to radio station WFPL. “If it were up to me, I do believe I would legalize it and tax it, particularly in sight [sic] of the fact that several other states have now come to that part of their legal system as well.”
Is there an accurate equivalent to the breathalyzer? For testing if you got into an accident.
Yes, but the authorities will want some accountability. If it stays in your system for a couple months that is a problem. Say you get into an accident and you had not smoked in 50 days. What if they say you were on it then? Are you positive there are no other testing methods?
If the numbers of smokers increase that will inevitably increase the number of people driving with it in their system. I guess my question is where is that determination made if a major accident occurs. How would a person defend themselves?
I have a hard time not seeing that as part of the process. A major one. I see you edited the other post that they can test for the levels in your system. Pardon my ignorance on this part of it. Can they accurately tell how long it has been since you smoked? If they couldn't what would keep innocent people from going to jail on simple su**CENSORED**ion and not being able to prove them wrong.
