Hi, my name is Cindy Castillo with Castillo Law. Today I'd like to talk to you about a new Arizona Supreme Court opinion regarding Carboxy-THC.
In the Shilgevorkyan case, which is the Arizona Supreme Court case, the court was considering whether or not it is illegal for an individual to drive while having the metabolite carboxy in their system. The Supreme Court in the state of Arizona has decided that in fact it is not illegal for an individual to drive with carboxy in their system.
Now what does that mean exactly? Well if you have smoked any form of marijuana, typically you will have THC in your system for some time after having ingested marijuana. The THC eventually metabolizes into two separate forms of metabolite.
The first is hydroxy. That sometimes can be impairing and unfortunately the Supreme Court has not decided whether or not hydroxy is an illegal metabolite to have in your blood if driving. However, the Supreme Court did decide that once the hydroxy metabolises into carboxy, that is not impairing and you cannot receive a DUI for just the drug carboxy, or the metabolite carboxy in your system.
Does that mean that you can't ever get a DUI if you just have carboxy in your system? In the state of Arizona, we know that the Supreme Court has stated yes, however it's very important that you understand that if you have carboxy with any other form of illegal drug or if you have alcohol in your system, the state still can pursue a DUI against you for the other types of drugs. The only thing that the Supreme Court has decided is that carboxy alone will not cause you to be prosecuted for a DUI.
If you have this type of case, you should consider speaking with an attorney who is experienced in this area. Also, if you have been prosecuted and actually convicted of a DUI in the past for only having the drug carboxy in your system, you should also consider talking to an attorney to determine whether or not that case may be able to be set aside or overturned. Thank you.

This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.
The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.
Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.
So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.
YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.
YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience. The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities. As of February 2017, there were more than 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube each minute, and one billion hours of content being watched on YouTube every day. As of August 2018, the website is ranked as the second-most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Internet, just behind Google. As of May 2019, more than 500 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute.
YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
