I'm in the medical profession, and anything above .5 is lethal to most people if I remember correctly (e.g the LD50 is the lethal dose of a drug that kills 50% of people). Alcoholics can go higher. In Canada we use a different system based on mlmol per unit of blood, and 17 is the legal limit (equiv to .08). I have had a patient break 120 before. It takes some time to get the lab results back, and we always see if we can guess. Not to brag, but I almost always win (it's not price is right rules).
*edit- just googled it and the LD 50 is .400, but as I said, I've seen patients higher who were still conscious, but alcohol does create a tolerance.

Do you ever worry about the next generation not wanting to become police officers, and thus losing a good pool of talent? I work closely with police at my job and think they are some of the finest people I've met; I sometimes wonder if teenagers whom otherwise would be considering a career in the field would be scared away with the negative publicity? Thanks, and great job by the way.

There are a ton of metabolites that can be detected that are removed rapidly. Also, THC is metabolised in the liver, and is removed a variety of ways, mostly through feces if I'm correct. Talk about a rough road check, even if you pass you still lose, really (that joke had like 4 levels to it).
The problem is that marijuana tolerance is stronger than other drugs such as alcohol, so you'd get misleading results from potheads who likely wouldn't be impaired.

What's the longest you're allowed to keep a 'fresh and ready' pizza for? I've gone in later at night and swore it was at least 8 hours old.
