Like another said, reading comprehension.
Traffic Stop....Judge on site....
that doesn't make sense. That would mean either every cop has a judge in the vehicle with him....or....its a checkstation/roadblock with 1 (one) judge at that location.
Hmm, which seems more plausible. 2,000 judges riding around with your police force....or 1 (one) judge at 1 (one) location.....
*disclaimer: not sure the county in question has 2,000 vehicles in their police force, nor have any idea the number of judges...

Her phone number at work is (813) 273-6233
(note, this is her work number at the Hillsborough County Sheriffs office, so if you are going to call, please make sure to take proper precautions. )
....So, does anybody really think that these herbs are going to go away? No, they will go underground, controlled by whom? Something else for the cop to check when he pulls you over, illegal bee pollen.....
The harmonization of laws, regulations and standards between and among trading partners requires intense, complex, time-consuming negotiations by CFSAN officials. Harmonization must simultaneously facilitate international trade and promote mutual understanding, while protecting national interests and establish a basis to resolve food issues on sound scientific evidence in an objective atmosphere. Failure to reach a consistent, harmonized set of laws, regulations and standards within the freetrade agreements and the World Trade Organization Agreements can result in considerable economic repercussions.

IPC: International Food & Agricultural Trade Policy Council
A look at the IPC membership will explain what interests it represents.
The Chairman is Robert Thompson, former Assistant Secretary US Department of Agriculture and former Presidential economic adviser.
Also included in the IPC are Bernard Auxenfans, former chairman Monsanto France;
Allen Andreas of ADM/Toepfer;
Andrew Burke, Bunge (US);
Dale Hathaway former USDA official and head IFPRI (US).
Other IPC members include Heinz Imhof, chairman of Syngenta (CH);
Rob Johnson of Cargill (US) and USDA Agriculture Policy Advisory Council;
Guy Legras (France) former EU Director General Agriculture,
as is Rolf Moehler of Germany.
Donald Nelson of Kraft Foods (US);
Joe O’Mara of USDA,
Hiroshi Shiraiwa of Mitsui & Co Japan;
Jim Starkey former US Trade Representative Assistant;
Hans Joehr, Nestle head of agriculture;
Jerry Steiner, Monsanto (US).
Members Emeritus include Ann Veneman, herself a board member of a Monsanto subsidiary company before she became US Secretary of Agriculture for George W. Bush in 2001.
In effect the IPC is run by US-based agribusiness giants including Cargill, Monsanto, Bunge, ADM, the very interests which benefit from the rules they drafted for WTO trade.
....ETA: Just thought about this as I reread my post. 5 years ago, Wyoming's legal limit was 0.12, and an open-container in the vehicle was also legal. Things have changed mighty quick.

Ok why not just instant arrest?
What do they need a blood test for??
Why not have a judge there to make you TAKE the test? Why blood? It's BS!
So if they make you take a blood test and they find other things in there does that mean you are SOL on that too??
This is totaly invasion of personal space and ones personal body.
I know it's a deadly night on the roads but blood tests are a bit EXTREME!
Why not have services to drive people to and from for free? It would be cheaper than the costs for a lawyer and a judge!
Ahhh...well this would never affect me because I NEVER EVER drink and drive but many think they are impervious to it. If they do just arrest them, take away their DL for a year instantly no get out of jail free card.
There are so many other ways to go about this..oh well.
...We lost the benefits of this Amendment when they enacted the Patroit Act. This and about about half the rest of them....
