In the first year of the drug test the accuracy was marginal. I'm all for stopping impaired drivers, but if it doesn't work, find a better test.
THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana, was the most prevalent drug found by the roadside tests, identified in 74 cases. In 11 of those cases, however, THC wasn’t found in subsequent blood analysis.
Why spend half a million dollars on a test that produces inaccurate results.

Multiple defense attorneys say they would advise their clients refuse Michigan’s new statewide roadside drug tests. They’re too untrustworthy, they say.
The penalty for refusing the test is a civil infraction, the fine for which varies by community, but it’s a better option than having unreliable results used to prosecute you in court, said Michael Komorn, a Farmington Hills-based drugged- and drunk-driving attorney, who also specializes in marijuana law.

Refuse roadside drug tests. Refuse field sobriety tests. Refuse polygraph tests (which are horrifically inaccurate). Refuse to answer any questions. Request an attorney, sit back silently, and relax.
