Howdy,

I have been overseas for a while and was wondering how long cops have been drug testing drivers for in Victoria or any other state. Has it just started? And how common are they? I work nights so I get breath tested all the time but I have only seen one drug bus and was curious as to how many are out there and how often they get used.

They don't happen as often as they shoul dunfortunatley, it is about time that they started cracking down on these tools.

It is fairly new though, hopefully it can be bigger and better soon :D

can someone clear this up for me.
we all know weed stays in your system for ages,
but how long?
if you smoked the day before would it show up?
or only after youve been smoking that day?

I thought it would show up even if you had it 6 days ago, so have a cone saturday night and drive anytime between sat and friday and your done, when in reality the effects of pot only last 3hrs max. then you feel tired.

from my understanding it will show up for 6 months on the secondary test but on the primary test only will for 3 days
i think its if it shows a high reading on the secondary test thats when you get done
like the breatho they primary test you then have to blood test you if you show a reading cause the first test isnt exactly accurate

Theres going to be a shitload of smoko drivers loosing there licence.

If the **** stays in the system for that long & can loose your licence.

6 months in the system...???? Thats bullshit to loose your licence 6 months after you have a cone..

no no no thats just how long it can be detected in your system ya goose not howe long after they can book you for it

i think its only the first 72 hours after you can be booked but on there discresion by the amount of the read out from your test thats stil considderd to be "noticably dangerous to others"
