Not to get political, but this is bullshit….
At a news conference Thursday, Governor Charlie Baker and public safety officials addressed issues surrounding the legal consumption of marijuana. The group introduced the ‘if you feel different, you drive different’ campaign which aims to educate cannabis users about the dangers of driving impaired. The campaign is part of the governor’s road safety initiative that includes hands-free driving, and lower speed limits in construction zones.
“But, there is still more we can do here in Massachusetts to continue to make our roads safer,” Baker said.
Through the new campaign, police officers are selected for special training to help them detect impaired driving. Those officers are called Drug Recognition Experts or DRE’s. If a police officer pulls someone over and believes they are under the influence of drugs they must take that person back to the station where a DRE will administer a fluid test to see which drug they are on and how much is in their system.
If someone refuses that test, they could lose their drivers license. Law enforcement officials said they are optimistic about the possibility of a roadside fluid test in the near future.
So if you’re tired because your crotch fruit was screaming all night and you’ve got bags under your eyes on your way to work, be prepared to be dragged to your local police station where the burden of proof is on you to prove you’re not guilty, instead of the other way around.
But it’s OK because according to Karyn Polito it’s “common sense” that your freedom and liberties are taken from you. This whole thing is just butthurt blowback because Charlie Baker can’t get over the fact that Massachusetts voters legalized weed. He is such a massive toolbag. Imagine he was this proactive about investigating how Leigha Genduso became a state trooper? Ya know, the DRUG DEALER the state police investigated and then hired anyway despite doing a background check. It seems to me that trusting the state police should be a higher priority than keeping potheads off the road. Just sayin.
P.S. Marijuana stays in your system for close to 2 weeks. What happens if you legally purchased and smoked weed a week ago and your piss test comes back with THC in it?
