Can't say. The studies I looked at stopped testing after 10. Apparently some impairment was measurable in some subjects. I was under the impression we were talking about smoking at perhaps 9 or 10 in the evening, then driving to work at 7 in the morning. Regardless, state law is pretty certain in it's wording...

Aside from preference, do you think it's ok? Most studies show intoxication and impairment from marijuana (two different things) vary widely between individuals, with product strength, means of ingestion, regularity of use, etc., all being factors. I would prefer someone with a habitual high alcohol tolerance to drive drunk, rather than a new years eve rookie, but they're still dui.

You cannot get a dui just for having a card. That said, dui blood tests often include one for marijuana metabolites. These chemicals remain in the blood long after ingestion, presumably after the "high" is gone. A positive result can get you a dui. The dui law is based on marijuana being a federal schedule 1 drug, supposedly having no valid medical use. As far as I'm aware, there is no acceptable "therapeutic level" of thc regarding dui. You're taking your chances, even long after use. I'd suggest not driving after ingesting, and not keeping the card or medication in the vehicle. Also don't advise police you have a card. This will greatly reduce the odds of being tested. Of course, if you have a CDL, or are involved in a serious or fatal accident, you may be subject to testing anyway.

On a sedan or coupe (determined by registration), rear and all side windows must ADMIT 70% of available light. No tint is allowed below the "AS1" line on the windshield. Most models come from the factory with this level of tint. Unscrupulous or misinformed installers will insist you are allowed to BLOCK 70%. This is not true. The tint level is NOT part of the state inspection procedure, thus may or may not pass, according to the whim of the mechanic, who is only required to make sure the windows are not "obstructed". Police with a measuring device "tint meter" may check this and cite accordingly. On a registered truck or station wagon (vans, suv), windows behind the driver's door are permitted any level of tint. Driver and front passenger doors must follow the 70% rule.

Was not aware of the wait, though this seems common for public housing elsewhere, too. Like I said, aside from casual visits and drive-throughs, I'm not too familiar with Johnstown, but have to wonder how they apparently overbuilt? At any rate, can't help but wonder if complaints about people from Philly moving in en masse are exaggerated...

Locally, a public school teaching job couldn't be had prior to covid and the current curriculum intrusions by nuts. Teachers make full year salaries for nine months of short day work (180 days vs 280 for everyone else), with extensive holiday breaks, sick and vacation days, and medical benefits. Because no one was vacating the positions, fewer students opted to obtain education degrees. That, and the general worker shortage, are to blame.

Former safety inspection mechanic certified. Any currently registered and insured vehicle qualified for safety inspection and sticker application, regardless of what state it was registered in. There was far more attention paid to insurance, ie meeting pa standards. I assume the same is true for emissions. Make sure you get emissions inspection in county of residence.
