The alternative explanation is interesting. Anecdotally I’ve heard from a number of former long term, chronic smokers that they experienced a lot more dreams and more vivid dreams upon quitting.

THC doesn’t cause HGN (horizontal gaze nystagmus) as measured by the NHTSA SFST battery’s “eye movement test”. The eye movement part of the sobriety test battery is designed to detect acute intoxication from CNS depressants.

CO’s THC level is presumptive rather than per se, that makes a huge difference in defending cases without impairment.

The charges are generally criminal rather than civil, so you can get an attorney even if you don’t have funds. The training materials to impeach them are gov. publications that you can get for free: https://www.wsp.wa.gov/breathtest/dredocs.php. Plenty of resources at NORML.org citing studies that can be pulled free from https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, and knowing a few NORML Legal Committee defense attorneys- they’re happy to share the knowledge and data to back up pot defense cases generally.

These really are cases that can be fought and won without plunking 10K on a defense under the right fact patterns.

Never had acute withdrawals from cannabis, even when quitting cold Turkey as a heavy chronic smoker as a teen for a couple years (morning to night most everyday). But I still find cannabis very useful for sleep decades later when I get into an insomnia spiral (it won’t knock me out cold like a lot of booze or benzos, but I’ll feel much more rested the next day).
