Marijuana Breathalyzer Developed
Georgia Tech researchers report they have developed the first practical breath test that can be used by police to identify marijuana smokers.
The developer of the portable pot-detecting kit, Joseph Lupton, said the device can spot even the slightest traces of marijuana odors on the breaths of anyone who submits to the test. Lupton said it took him 12 years to perfect the machine.
Dr. Larry Howard, the director of Georgia's State Crime Laboratory, predicted that state troopers will be equipped with pot breath-testers within the next four years.
