LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — An Oakland-based company has developed a marijuana breathalyzer for distribution across police stations in the U.S. to begin a nationwide test to see if they can monitor people operating motor vehicles while under the influence of pot, and drivers in California were among the first to be tested.
As a part of a initial field test, several drivers were pulled over due to poor driving and were asked to voluntarily blow into the marijuana breathalyzer developed by Hound Labs.
According to RT, two of the drivers who took part in the test had admitted to smoking pot in the previous 30 minutes, and both drivers delivered a positive reading on the handheld device.
There were other drivers who confessed to smoking two to three hours before driving their vehicles and they also tested positive.
None of the positive tested drivers were arrested, as this was all part of a field test, but they were not allowed to continue driving.
