Michigan Might Be The First State To Use Controversial Roadside Saliva Tests For Pot

According to The Detroit Free Press, the bill would make Michigan the first state to adopt the test.

The bill is supported by state legislators from both parties, and has support from the Michigan State Police.

The idea is to give police an analogue to the breath tests used to check whether drivers are drunk.

Drivers wouldn't be arrested just for failing the proposed saliva tests -- instead, the tests would be used to add to the evidence used to justify an arrest. But researchers who have studied the test say the results are inconsistent, especially when applied to regular marijuana users.
