Plan to catch stoned drivers dangers punishing harmless individuals, critics say

But protection attorneys and civil liberties advocates say the analysis system that Baker is selling, which depends on a collection of observations by specifically skilled officers, is unscientific, deeply flawed, and will punish harmless individuals.

The “drug recognition knowledgeable’’ program, or DRE, has been rejected in quite a few circumstances by Massachusetts judges who dominated it lacks scientific validation. Studies have discovered that this system’s claims of accuracy are overstated, and that it’s biased and liable to false alarms.
