Breaking Research Published in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry Journal Could Help to Combat Rise in Drivers Impaired by Edible Marijuana Consumption

Though marijuana edibles are becoming increasingly common, scant information exists on how to test drivers for impairment following their consumption. For the first time, research published today in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry journal evaluates the performance of roadside saliva tests for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) following consumption of edibles, showing that lower THC cutoff points are needed for these tests to effectively detect marijuana ingestion.
