Question about Washington Weed legalization.
Say you get pulled over. You haven't smoked in 24 hours but the cop says you seem impaired. Obviously you still have THC in your system but youre not "high".

How would this situation proceed?

You;re fucked. Better get a lawyer who can convince the jury smoking pot doesn't translate to impairment. I would refuse to take any roadside sobriety test, and refuse any blood draw. Might help if you want to argue they violated your rights.

Re: Question about Washington Weed legalization.
meant to add more quote, sorry.

"On November 6, 2012, the voters of the State of Washington passed Initiative 502 on marijuana reform. From the broader public perspective, the passage of this measure legalizes the adult possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use and creates both a system to tax the sale of marijuana and marijuana products and a revenue stream designated for substance abuse education and treatment. From a DUI perspective, I-502 creates a very specific legal standard for Marijuana DUI setting a per se limit of active THC of 5 nanograms per milliliter of blood.
Prior to the passage of I-502, there was no set legal limit for THC as it related to Washington DUI law. If the state believed an individual had been driving while impaired by the use of marijuana, it had to prove actual impairment irrespective of the actual level of THC in driver’s system. Under the new law, set to go into effect on December 6, 2012, the presence of 5 nanograms of THC in a state approved blood test within two hour of driving creates a per se DUI akin to a .08 level of alcohol."

Re: Question about Washington Weed legalization.
I'm pretty sure you guys got it wrong. Yes THC stays in the body stored in fat, but it really isn't detectable in blood for very long.

Go to this link:

[link to www.canorml.org]

And scroll about halfway down to where it talks about "Blood Tests" It says:

Unlike urine tests, blood tests detect the active presence of THC in the bloodstream. In the case of smoked marijuana, THC peaks rapidly in the first few minutes after inhaling, often to levels above 100 ng/ml in blood plasma. It then declines quickly to single-digit levels within an hour. High THC levels are therefore a good indication that the subject has smoked marijuana recently. THC can remain at low but detectable levels of 1-2 ng/ml for 8 hours or more without any measurable signs of impairment in one-time users. In chronic users, detectable amounts of blood THC can persist for days. In one study of chronic users, residual THC was detected for 24 to 48 hours or longer at levels of 0.5 - 3.2 ng/ml in whole blood (1.0 - 6.4 ng/ml in serum) [Skopp and Potsch].



So it is below 5 ng/mL after a couple of hours. Also of course it depends on how much you THC you smoke.
