If some is driving in a way that would be hard to argue they arent impaired and they fail that test, it's hard for me to stand in the way if that. 


What I dont want to see is no proof of impairment, failing that tests and getting hauled away for a DUI or DWI.  Should you not smoke then drive? Sure, but this sounds like the equivalent of not being able to tell if someone had one beer or 12 and hauling them off regardless.

He loved weed. Then the vomiting began. Months later, he died


The doctors told Regina Denney and her son Brian Smith Jr. what was causing his severe vomiting and abdominal pain.


Neither the teenager nor his mother believed what they said: smoking weed.


Smoking marijuana, the two knew, was recommended to cancer patients to spur the appetite. How could it lead to Brian's condition? 


As the months went by and the pounds slipped off Brian’s once healthy frame, it was clear that whatever was causing his stomach troubles had just the opposite effect.

Brian kept smoking. The symptoms continued on and off.


Last October, after another severe bout of vomiting, the teenager died. He was 17 years old.  


Five months later, as Denney pored over a coroner’s report for answers, she finally accepted that marijuana played a pivotal role in her son’s death. The autopsy report, which Denney received in March, attributed her son's death to dehydration due to cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome.


"We had never heard about this, had never heard about marijuana causing any vomiting. He and I were like, 'Yeah, I think it’s something else,' ” Denney said. “Brian did not believe that was what it was because of everything we had ever been told about marijuana. … It didn’t make any sense.”


Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, also known as CHS, can arise in response to long-term cannabis use. The syndrome consists of vomiting, nausea and abdominal pain, which can often be alleviated by taking hot showers. 


Doctors say CHS is on the rise, but they are not certain why. Marijuana is more available than in years past, and it is more potent.


Rarely does CHS result in death.

The hottest new psychedelic drug among trendy New Yorkers is illegal toad venom


Sitting cross-legged on a blanket in his Soho apartment, Barrett Pall inhaled toad-venom smoke through a glass stem pipe.


Thirty seconds later, he was crying.


“I was crying really hard, yelling ‘I’m so sorry’ over and over,” Pall recalled to The Post of his first time experimenting with the illegal psychedelic drug last year. (He’s since tried it twice more.)


“I saw my younger self with my parents and ex-boyfriends in places [where] I’d been hurt.”


The ­social-media influencer and life coach said the experience concluded after 45 minutes of “shooting through the universe” and “being reborn.”


Despite the trip’s short duration, the effects of toad venom — which is extracted from Colorado River toads, also known as Sonoran Desert toads — come on strongly and immediately. It leaves users immobile and unaware, and can cause extreme emotional reactions, euphoria and vomiting, according to drug researchers and users.


It’s also the hot mind-altering drug du jour among well-off New Yorkers, following the trendy trips of ayahuasca, mushrooms and mescaline.


The toxic liquid is extracted by “milking” the toad’s poisonous venom glands, then drying it to a paste.


Users, such as Pall, score the extremely rare resin by hiring foreign shamans, often from Mexico, who travel throughout the US distributing it at ceremonies that cost $200 to $500 a head.


Recently, 21 people in white robes gathered at a mansion in the Hamptons to smoke the substance with the same shaman that Pall used.


While someone beat a drum in the background, the leader read a prayer about love and held the pipe up to each guest’s lips.


“Some people moaned, cried or convulsed on their backs,” said one attendee who asked to remain anonymous, citing legal reasons. “Others . . . started dancing, singing or chanting.”


Once the venom — also called bufo alvarius — wears off, users experience an afterglow that can trigger them to make major life changes.


“I immediately broke up with my long-term boyfriend,” said Pall, who also booked a trip around the world and decided to reconnect with his estranged father. “I was just so sure that everything I was deciding was right.”


But toad venom is not without its dangers. Some shamans operate “more like drug dealers” than spiritual healers and don’t properly look after participants, said Davis.


“If people get dosed too high, they can ‘white out’ and disassociate from their mind and body,” he added. “Anxiety can persist for days, and we’ve heard of people going to the emergency room.”
