Why a Pot 'Breathalyzer' Won't Work

The problem is that recent research clearly shows that the levels of marijuana's active compound, called tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, don't line up in a straightforward way with how impaired people are, according to the paper, published today (Jan. 25) in the journal Trends in Molecular Medicine.

Researchers also need to figure out how long it takes for the body to break down certain compounds called cannabinoids, and flush them out of the system.

"All toxicologists thought that THC was out of the blood in 6 to 8 hours," said Huestis, who owns a toxicology consulting company. But THC is quite unlike alcohol, which dissolves in water and is therefore easy to flush from the body. People who use marijuana frequently may have a huge amount of THC stored in their tissues, and so no test for THC can distinguish whether someone smoked marijuana today or a month ago.
