Cannabix Technologies Inc. (OTC: BLOZF) (CSE: BLO), developer of the handheld Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer for law enforcement and workplace testing, recently announced the addition of Mr. Rocco Iannapollo as an advisor. Mr. Iannapollo is an expert on substance abuse programs with more than 20 years of experience working for Fortune 50.
“We are very pleased to have Rocco Iannapollo join our team of advisors as Cannabix develops relationships with law enforcement agencies, employers, and other industry stakeholders,” said Cannabix Technologies Inc. President Kal Malhi.
In addition to making this appointment, the company’s management team met with State of Colorado officials in Denver to introduce its Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer to them. The officials urged them to register with the state’s Request for Proposal (“RFP”) website for potential RFPs regarding marijuana detection at roadside, which is presumably a big concern for the state’s police force.
“It is evident from our discussions with prosecutors and law enforcement personnel that breath testing for drugs could be a preferred choice in comparison to other collection methods,” added Mr. Malhi in reference to the meets with government officials. “For example, we know that THC can be detected for up to 48 hours in oral fluid, meaning that its detection may not coincide with impairment.”
The company recently released the first images of the alpha prototype of the device, which is being tested on medical marijuana patients to confirm efficacy, while management indicated that it’s working on a beta prototype that will be used by law enforcement agencies to test efficacy and ease of use.
