I’ve written numerous articles warning everyone that DHS is working with police departments and UC Berkley to create a pot breathalyzer. Unfortunately it appears my warnings went unheeded and now police in California are being equipped with pot breathalyzers. (click here to read about DHS paying police to set up DUI checkpoints.)

The police chief of Lompoc, California, announced his department’s participation and said he hopes to provide the technology to a half-dozen departments over the next six months.

Another article warns cops will be equipped with pot breathalyzers in 2017:

“If all goes as planned, you could be seeing this (a pot breathalyzer) at a DUI checkpoint some time by the end of 2017.”

  1. Legalization of medical marijuana is not linked with increased traffic fatalities, a new study titled ‘US Traffic Fatalities, 1985–2014, and Their Relationship to Medical Marijuana Laws’ found the number of people killed in traffic accidents dropped after medical marijuana laws were enacted.

    “The decrease in traffic fatalities was particularly striking – 12 percent – in 25- to 44-year-olds, an age group with a large percentage of registered medical marijuana users.”

    “Instead of seeing an increase in fatalities, we saw a reduction, which was totally unexpected,” said Julian Santaella-Tenorio, the study’s lead author and a doctoral student at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health in New York City.
