"While driving under the influence of pot is never acceptable, neither is it sound public policy to treat sober drivers as if they are impaired simply because inactive marijuana metabolites may be detectable in their blood or urine, said Keith Stroup, Executive Director of The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). Stroup's remarks were in response to this week's launch of a new federal campaign to prosecute drivers who test positive for any presence of marijuana, including inactive metabolites that can remain present in the body for days or even weeks after past pot use."
