The new top cop in Kamloops says the Mounties in the Tournament Capital don’t have any new federal approved device to test drivers for being drug impaired, once pot is legalized October 17th.
Superintendent Syd Lecky says at this point there are more questions unanswered.
“We are going to be focusing on more traditional methods that we already have. Standardized Fuel Sobriety Training, S.F.S.D.T. for short and drug recognition expert training. So we do have some recognition.”
Councillor Tina Lange replies ..”Your nose.”
Lecky says, “You use your nose too, but for court purposes we need a little more than that. So there are some experts we can turn to, But there is no question it is going to be a challenge.”
Vancouver and Delta Police say officers they won’t be using the controversial roadside Draeger Drug Test 5000 to check for THC – the primary psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.
