Identify stoned drivers with objective data about recent marijuana use

Law enforcement officers face new challenges

With marijuana legal in 30 states, more people now drive stoned

A 2017 survey by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) found that over 50% of the (marijuana) users reported consistently driving high in the past 30 days.

Existing roadside drug tests cannot identify recent marijuana use

Oral fluid tests measure residual THC which can be present for over 24 hours after marijuana use — long after impairment subsides.

Officers need better information at the roadside about recent marijuana use

Using a breathalyzer to measure THC in breath provides the best information.

The Solution:

The world’s first breathalyzer to measure recent marijuana use and alcohol levels

The Hound® breathalyzer is the only solution today that gives law enforcement an objective way to determine if a driver has recently used marijuana and is therefore within the peak impairment window.

"We can't wrongly arrest people for crimes that get overturned because of wrongful determination."
