Still, not worth the risk of losing one's ability to be gainfully employed.
This is what I said. OK it's legal, so you toast yourself over the weekend legally. Then next week you smash something or get hurt at work. Automatic drug test! Oops you have thc in the system and you are now unemployed and tagged as a drug user!!

In other news I have found the holy grail of getting likes, post an AWESOME self portrait!!! Thanks Pentaxians!!

Or, like Racer X and I, you lose your professional license. So now, you're unemployed, trained but unlicensed and labeled a drug user.

At least with alcohol you know it clears the system quickly! There are other issues there but that is the upside! and unemployed is such a bummer!

The buffer on the K3 clears quickly as well. Possibly the Police could use a sniffer attached to the K mount on a K3 to take a photo at the same time they record blood alcohol? New technology, I believe, from hociR.

Boy, it's things like this I do not miss in the States ... and the fear of a "false positive". Drug testing is the exception to the rule in France ... very rare AFAIK.

If it would test for current influence rather than prior use I would be all for it.

Hmmmm . . . . . . there my be hope for hociR after all.

Then again, nah!
