SASKATOON, Saskatchewan, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- A pot-smoking Canadian motorist was acquitted of impaired driving by a judge who said there wasn't enough evidence she actually couldn't drive.
The woman, whose name was not reported, was busted at a traffic checkpoint in Saskatoon last year even though she had been driving appropriately. She was undone by the smell of marijuana rolling out the window.
The woman flunked the roadside sobriety test administered by the arresting officer by failing to touch her nose five times, but she was said to be cooperative, coherent and able to walk without weaving.
"I would have appreciated some evidence as to how these observations related to the accused's ability to drive a motor vehicle," sad Provincial Court Judge D.E. Labach.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. said prosecutors were considering an appeal.
