A groundbreaking review by researchers at the University of California at Davis, published in the Journal of AOAC International, challenges the current understanding of cannabis impairment and its detection in drivers. This study reveals that the presence of THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis, in bodily fluids does not reliably indicate impairment.

This conclusion raises questions about the effectiveness and fairness of laws that penalize drivers based on THC levels in their bloodstream, suggesting that these measures might not accurately reflect an individual’s ability to drive safely. The research advocates for a reevaluation of traffic safety policies to ensure they are based on scientific evidence and fairness.
