The Cannabis Breathalyzer May Be Here Sooner Than You Think
We know it’s coming, but is it here, already? No worry as long as you don’t get high then drive. The on-the-job implications are dire. We need to investigate a THC meter vs. the metabolite test used now. Off hand, anyone know how long it takes THC to go inert? It’s kind of a pisser, but a device like this will make it easier to re-legalize. If the powers that be can be sure, like with an alcohol breath test, well . . .
Cannabix Technologies Inc. is the developer of the patent pending Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer for law enforcement and the workplace. The Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer drug-impairment recognition system is based on breath testing technology that has been developed to test individuals for recent consumption of the THC component of marijuana. Cannabix is advancing its products to enable law enforcement personnel to use this technology to enhance detection of marijuana impaired driving offences on North American roads at a time when marijuana is becoming legal in many jurisdictions. Cannabix is working to develop a drug-testing device that will detect Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC- the psychoactive component of marijuana that causes intoxication) using breath samples. The device would be used to provide detection of THC at the roadside to identify drivers intoxicated by the use of marijuana. The device will also be useful for other practical applications such as testing employees in the workplace where intoxication by THC can be hazardous. The device is currently in prototype development and the Company is rapidly developing this technology.
