Repeal and Reform the Roadside Drug Testing regime!

People who have consumed cannabis days or even weeks ago return positive results because cops are testing for presence instead of impairment.

People who have consumed cannabis days or even weeks ago return positive results because cops are testing for presence instead of impairment. What if you ended up with a criminal record, your license revoked or even jail time because you’d had a beer 3 days ago? That’s the reality for dozens or even hundreds of people in NSW. 

Meanwhile people who have been legally prescribed medicinal cannabis can lose their license if the presence of cannabis is detected in their system.

How many lives have been ruined because of a false positive because procedures weren’t followed? How many more because people are being punished when they have no impairment? And how many people can’t drive because they need medicinal cannabis to manage acute pain or mental health issues?

The Roadside Drug Testing Regime must be repealed until it can be reformed to test for impairment, not merely presence.
