    It wont beat the numbers of those in jail, those dead ... and the number of ruined families ... all due to a legal product that is sold in most supermarkets.

    A few hundred more dead on the road wont really be noticed (or cared about). Well you might if you're related to one of those dead ... or in jail.

    Have you guys looked at the lifetime probability of dying in a road accident? I did the maths myself recently.

    If you drive at an average speed of 80km/h, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year, on average you'd need to drive for over 250 years straight before dying in a motor accident.

    Motorcycles are dramatically more dangerous - under the same conditions you'd have to ride for 12 straight years before dying on average. 12 straight years of riding 24/7 without even stopping to take a piss.

    Road deaths aren't as common as people think, or as common as the police want you to believe (they have to justify their pathetic existence somehow). So stop fucking leturing people on how dangerous it is out there.
    How did all those people die in that falcon near taupo a couple of months ago? It's not even a 20 year old car? Time travel?

    I wouldn't bet on that.

    You can have one or the other, not both.
    They aren't planning on making it compulsory as far as I know.

    What a load of shit.

    It would still be an offence to drive/ride under the influence of cannabis.

    Do they test for cannabis impairment?

    There are swab tests available to test for recent exposure.

    It's not just the deaths that count, the thousands of fucked up people that take years to learn to walk / talk /do things like feed themselves that few ever hear of. People (their family's) that might think it would have been better for them had they actually did get killed.

    Probably a just about the same chance of winning some money in Lotto ... as getting injured / killed in a motor vehicle accident.

    Perhaps you change your user name to Lucky. A lot of those killed and injured were not at fault ... just at/in the wrong place when "Shit Happened" ...


    But I wish you the best of luck anyway. None of the unlucky options ... I would wish on anybody. Not even you.

    Mate has just come back from Canada, we work in the same field. With dumbsmoke they are getting an increase in workplace accidents. Dramatically so. Looks like workplace testing will become common.

    Saliva testing looks at the active ingredients of cannabis. These are normally detectable for 4 - 6 hours post consumption.

    The latent ingredients of cannabis are detectable by a blood test or body sample for up to a month.

    The idea that someone will be prosecuted for drug driving for a joint they smoked 2 weeks ago is propaganda from the people who are opposed to saliva testing.

    Or the ignorant.

    The existing Compulsory Impairment Test will still detect impairment. It's been available since around 2012.

    It just doesn't get used as much as it should be.

    The saliva test doesn't test for impairment. Just for the presence of the active ingredients of cannabis.
