I have long been an advocate of a direct test for coordination, judgment, and reaction time, instead of the current cannabis metabolite test being used in some areas to determine whether or not a driver is stoned.  The problem with this test is that cannabis metabolites can remain in a person’s blood for a month after usage has stopped, and is a very poor indicator of the driver’s state of mind.

Instead, a field-administered test of reaction time, judgment, and coordination could be a vastly better indicator of driver impairment and driving ability.  It can be administered with a laptop computer, as law-enforcement officers usually have in their cars, or by a custom device.  Not only would it detect impairment, irrespective of what intoxicant was used, but would also get aged or unhealthy drivers off the road.  It makes little difference whether a driver is impaired due to drug use or because of serious illnesses or age-related degeneration.

While smoking cannabis may be how researchers tested, or noted, the efficacy, eating cannabis provides a more even, time-release, and may therefore be a better alternative to smoking, which spikes blood content of the cannabinoids quickly, followed by a faster decline.

It may also help Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s patients, too.
