Law enforcement officers face new challenges
With recreational cannabis use legal in over 15 states, more people now drive under the influence.
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 data.
Why use the Hound breathalyzer?
Test for alcohol and marijuana
Capture breath once to measure both alcohol and marijuana with the same breathalyzer.
Be confident in the accuracy of results
Measure THC in breath with a portable tool that matches the sensitivity of sophisticated lab equipment.
Gain public trust
Use objective data about recent marijuana use – the Hound breathalyzer does not measure marijuana use from days or weeks earlier.
Use a less-invasive test
Collect samples without touching body fluids such as oral fluid, blood, and urine.
Automatically store a tamper-resistant second sample for analysis at a later date.
Keep results secure and accessible
Easily access 100 encrypted results via the touchscreen on the handheld unit.
Simple & Intuitive
A few easy-to-follow steps provide on-location results in minutes.
