10. Only way the test could be valid is if it measured AMOUNT of pot in your system.

"presence" of pot ( actually its metabolites) can be seen for 30 days or more, it is stored in fat cells.
They would need a verifiable way to test for amount=impaired.
As far as I know, there is no agreed upon measurement for impaired.

I doubt any test would be valid in the current # of legal pot states.

btw....most DUI detectors are supposed to be "calibrated" every so often, and DUIs are often tossed out if you can afford a lawyer who can challenge calibration of the device.
