Marijuana legalization, when discussed, “stoned driving” is the biggest concern that some representatives bring up. Thanks to a California company, Hound Labs Inc., this may no longer be an excuse for why they will not support legislation initiatives.
Hound Labs may be bringing the first ever cannabis breathalyzer test to the market. For many years, it has been standard that those pulled over by the police that are suspected to be under the influence of alcohol have to submit to a roadside breathalyzer test. This technology allows them to measure the amount of alcohol in a person’s system. This gives them evidence to see if they are above the legal limit for safe driving. In addition, Hound Labs Inc. is hoping to bring the same accurate testing for cannabis intoxication levels to the market in the near future.
The technology is currently being tested and they are hoping to see results early next year. Furthermore, we will just celebrate the fact that the states that have legalized cannabis for recreational and medical consumption. Since then, there is no increase in traffic accidents due to cannabis consumption. This is just another way that technology is going to help shape the future of cannabis businesses. Then shape the industry as a whole.
