Arizona high court to rule on blood test of juvenile

The Arizona Supreme Court rules Thursday on the case of a juvenile who faced juvenile proceedings for driving under the influence of marijuana in case stemming from a blood test conducted without consent of a parent.

A Pima County sheriff’s deputy conducted the blood test for marijuana at the youth’s school after a monitor smelled marijuana on the student’s clothing and found drug paraphernalia in a vehicle in which the student and two others arrived at school late.

A juvenile court judge barred use of the blood test results, ruling that the rights of the boy’s parents were violated.

The state Court of Appeals disagreed, ruling that test was permitted under the implied-consent doctrine that applies to drivers.
