Problems with roadside saliva testing
We all want to keep our roads as safe as possible – but are the laws we have in place keeping us safe, or are they overprotective and ineffective? Recently police have increased their saliva testing quotas, but plenty argue that these tests are not an accurate measurement of intoxication, especially with a substance like marijuana, which can stay in your system for up to six weeks depending on your usage patterns. With such a push to legalise medical marijuana, is it reasonable to have tests like these in place? Michael Balderstone, the President of both the Australian HEMP Party and the HEMP Embassy spoke to The Daily about the potential problems with roadside salavia testing.
