Government authorities in various countries are also introducing favorable legislation to control alcohol and drug consumption, which is eventually leading to market expansion. For instance, according to the Road Traffic Act of Japan, driving while intoxicated carries serious consequences. A driver is deemed to be Driving Under the Influence (DUI) at an alcohol concentration of 0.15 mg per 1L of breath. DUI is penalized by up to three years in jail with hard labor and a fine of up to an amount of approximately USD 4,000. Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is punishable by up to five years in jail with hard labor and an amount of approximately USD 7,500 fine. Consequences are worse if a DUI or DWI occurrence causes an accident. Drivers who cause someone else’s death or serious injury while impaired by drugs or alcohol are subject to up to 20 years in jail with hard labor (in the case of a fatality) or 15 years in prison without parole (in the case of an injury).

Following the legalization of marijuana, several states in the U.S. are exploring for novel approaches to deter impaired driving. Several plans would result in questionable and potentially unconstitutional police activities. Roadside saliva testing without a warrant is one such notion. These tests raise severe issues with equal protection and due processes. Roadside saliva testing without a warrant is one such notion.
