Cannabis Legalization spurs Demand for Cannabis Breathalyzer

Recreational cannabis usage is becoming legalized in more states, leading to an increase in drivers under the influence. A survey conducted by the Colorado Department of Transportation showed that 56 percent of cannabis consumers drove within the following two hours of cannabis usage, while approximately the same percentage say that driving under the influence is safe. Yet, studies show that driving under the influence of cannabis is comparable to drunk driving.

Many drivers believe that law enforcement agencies do not possess the proper technology to test for cannabis impairment, but one company is beginning to change the scene now.

Cannabix Technologies Inc. (OTC: BLOZF) (CSE: BLO) is now developing a cannabis THC-based breathalyzer. The breathalyzer will work just like an alcohol breathalyzer. The driver will have to blow into a device installed into the vehicle, then the ignition will start depending on the sobriety outcome

Cannabix filed patent applications for the marijuana-focused ignition interlock device (IID). The company pointed out that the product’s Beta 3.0 device is now 95 percent complete and will begin testing soon.

“Cannabix Technologies continues to receive considerable interest from government and law enforcement for the development of its point of care Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer,” said Cannabix Technologies CEO Rav Mlait. “Our team of scientists in Vancouver and Florida are working methodically and rapidly to develop this device for the public.”

Cannabix’s new breathalyzer technology will significantly enforce driving while intoxicated considering there was little to no technology prior. This positions Cannabix to become the only manufacturer for this type of technology.
