Hound Labs, a laboratory based in Oakland, California, tested the world’s first dual marijuana and alcohol breathalyzer to detect and measure recent marijuana and alcohol use in breath. As amazing as that is, the product can also detect if a person has eaten an edible in a recent time period. Using cutting-edge science and technology, the company discovered a patent-pending approach which can detect THC and measure levels to well below 500 picograms.
Hound Labs are currently testing the prototype in real situations with different law enforcement and agencies throughout California at the roadside. So far, the Hound’s breathalyzer is giving law enforcement immediate measurements for the few hours that THC is present in breath, allowing them to identify drivers who are actually impaired from recent use. This will ultimately reduce collisions and fatalities, which are on the rise with the increase in marijuana consumption. Once the breathalyzer is available to the public, regular citizens will be sure to purchase this amazing product to test it on themselves before driving on the open road.
