Canada still short of police officers trained to spot drug-impaired drivers

So how the hell have they spotted them the last few decades? It's like THREE people in the whole country that didn't smoke dope because it was illegal all these years. They're still trying to imply everyone is gonna fire one up and go for a cruise all of a sudden.
AFAIC more bullshit made up "added costs" every politician at every level is drooling to get their funding for.

Get every police officer smoking pot for a few weeks and they'll all be able to spot drug-impaired drivers.

It's called a Standard Field Sobriety Test and it works by determining if you're impaired or not. The substance (alcohol, legal drug, illegal drug) that impaired you is irrelevant for an impaired driving charge.

Then a blood test finds coke or pot or crack in your blood, and because they are illegal, that's another charge.

FYI, that same test can get an impaired driving charge if you're too tired as well.

Colorado and Washington both saw marked increases in the number of drivers killed in fatal collisions who had marijuana in their blood.

Legalization won't make a difference for lame-os like me who have zero desire to try it, but for those who have been curious, but worried about getting caught with an illegal substance are more likely to try it. And for those who already use it, now that it's legal and easier to get, they can consume it more often.

Even though the last time I tried it was 15 years ago, I still remember the effect it had on me. I would NEVER drive on pot. 8O

Actually it was a noted increase in the number of accidents, not in fatalities.

In the 1970s we used to measure the distance to Whistler and the Okanagan in "joints"... but we're talking light beer vs. grain alcohol in today's weed.
Stopped smoking it in the early 1990s when it got so strong it felt more like getting a severe flu than getting a buzz on.

I haven't smoked pot, because it's illegal. Marijuana has never touched these lips, has never touched these fingers. Ever. Once it's legal in Canada, I still won't. The reason is I'm a computer software developer. Past jobs developed software for the Credit Union Central of Alberta, used by every credit union in that province. I was a contractor for the City of Winnipeg, when Manitoba announced they would take over the city's welfare department. I was "Information Systems Specialist" which is just below computer manager for the whole city department. The manager himself left for another job in the city before his job ceased to exist, so I managed the mainframe for the department the last 2 months before it closed. I worked for Miami-Dade County; I was solely responsible for the computer system for one tax. I was technical architect for the year 2000 project management office for MTS (Manitoba Telecom Services). I couldn't have gotten these jobs if I had even one pot conviction. If I ever smoke pot, then I won't be able to get a job in the US. Some states have made it legal, but immigration is federal and pot is still illegal under US federal law. If I were to ever smoke pot, and I mean ever, then I wouldn't be allowed a work visa. Miami-Dade county had the FBI perform a security clearance for me; I had "reliability" security clearance. The lowest, but it's still FBI security clearance. I couldn't get that if I had ever done pot.
