With the legalization of adult-use and medical marijuana in a growing number of U.S. states, it is difficult to resolve the mounting concerns states face with users driving under the influence of marijuana. Law enforcement agencies are therefore seeking devices capable of testing for recent THC consumption without the need for invasive blood or urine samples.
Cannabix Technologies Inc. (OTC: BLOZF) (CSE: BLO) aims to solve these problems with its patent pending Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer for law enforcement and workplaces. After several months in development, the company recently released its first publicly available device renderings and video presentation of its feature-rich, durable, hand-held THC breathalyzer device.
“We are impressed with the amount of increasing interest that has been expressed for the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer device from a wide range of industries and potential users,” said Cannabix Technologies Inc. President Kal Malhi. “With the legalization of marijuana in several U.S. states and zero tolerance for marijuana impaired driving in 12 states, we can see that [there is need for the product].”
The renderings will be showcased at the National Marijuana Business Conference and Expo from November 12th to November 14th at the Rio in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the conference, senior executives will be sharing the video demo and discussing prototype development progress at Booth 219.
In addition to the device renderings and video presentation, the technology is progressing through development with hardwire circuits and printed circuit board designs completed. Software development is also well underway with drivers for various subsystems already executing.
“We are working to create a device that will be durable for everyday field use,” added Mr. Malhi. “A device that will be easy to administer and provide results quickly and reliably.”
Shares of Cannabix Technologies Inc. jumped 6% in early trading on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 following the news release.
