'Game-changer' breathalyzer test for marijuana is a billion times more sensitive than standard alcohol test and will tell cops if suspects are stoned

New marijuana breathalyzer tests that are billion times more sensitive than one for blood alcohol levels, has been dubbed a 'game-changer' by researchers.

Some law enforcement agencies across the country have been reluctant to have marijuana legalized in their states, worried relaxed rules for the drug could lead to an explosion of impaired drivers on the road.

But now cops could loosen up to the idea, thanks to devices from Hound Labs and Sanntek that can tell how recently someone has consumed THC, a by-product of marijuana, and in turn detecting whether they're likely to be high.

'With alcohol, if you have over 0.08% in your blood, there's the presumption that you're intoxicated,' Christopher Leusner, head of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, told the Philadelphia Inquirer. 'There hasn't been a blood test or a breath test that can determine if you're impaired by marijuana.'

Much needed.
Too many people driving stoned putting innocent peoples lives at risk.

Thc is metabolized differently. This, like a blood test shows rates, not current levels. It won't be used in this capacity at all. Just like they had to pull almost all the road side cocaine test kits... they test for ammonia and little else. Easily thrown out of court, cause science.
