This Ain't Good

Drivers take hit over pot smoking - 06/23/06 - The Detroit News Online:

In a 4-3 vote, the court ruled that motorists can be prosecuted for driving under the influence of drugs if they test positive for any trace of marijuana, including a metabolized remnant that experts say can stay in a person's system for weeks after the smoke.

'They are automatically guilty even though they are no longer impaired by it,' said Tim Beck, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, which wants the drug legalized, taxed and regulated for adult use as alcohol is. 'It's not based on common sense or justice.'
What bullshit this is.
I don't do weed, but the fact that any trace whatsoever of any chemical in one's system can be used as grounds for a conviction is just totally stupid. Let's I had a cold last Tuesday and took some Nyquil. Using their logic, I could be convicted of a DUI on Thursday!

Fucking nannys.
