California Tech Firm Claims Creation of Legitimate Pot Breathalyzer

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

With several more states on track to legalize recreational marijuana within the next year, the pressure is mounting for science to develop an effective Breathalyzer that law enforcement can not only use to gauge impairment, but one that accomplishes this goal without scrutinizing every driver showing traces of THC metabolites with a DUI.

Although this all-important task has been somewhat of a challenge for the tech firms that have attempted to capitalize on this concept, a California company called Hound Labs revealed earlier this week that it has successfully manufactured a first-of-its-kind marijuana Breathalyzer that police can use to “determine if an individual is impaired from recent marijuana use.” 

The device, which was created with the help of scientists at the University of California in Berkeley, will reportedly solve the stoned driving conundrum by giving law enforcement a tool for measuring marijuana intoxication unprecedented even by standards by which drunk driving is measured.

Dallas Cop to Help Mobilize Marijuana Activists In Tyler, Texas On Saturday

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, December, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

texas norml region conference marijuana cannabisLocal marijuana policy reform advocates, including an active-duty Dallas police officer, will gather Saturday for an advocacy training event at the Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce in Tyler. Details of the event are available at http://texasmarijuanapolicy.org/training-tyler/.

The event, hosted by Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy, is the fourth in a series of events being held around the state as part of an effort to inject the marijuana policy debate into 2016 state legislative races. Regional events are also scheduled for Houston on December 12, Amarillo on January 9, and Lubbock on January 10.

The featured speaker at Saturday’s event will be Nick Novello, an officer with the Dallas Police Department and member of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP). Members of the media are invited to listen to his presentation at 3:30 p.m. CT, and he will be available for interviews immediately after.

“I work toward marijuana legalization because, as an active police officer, I have an obligation to improve public safety and protect my community,” Officer Novello said. “Regulation and education will focus police resources on more important crimes and make the drug more difficult for children to get. By every measure, marijuana prohibition has failed. Safer communities are within reach.”

Joining Officer Novello will be Michael Bullock, legislative director for State Rep. David Simpson, who will offer tips on meeting with lawmakers to discuss marijuana policy reform. Rep. Simpson is currently facing off with Rep. Bryan Hughes in the Republican primary race for Texas Senate District 1, which encompasses Tyler. Earlier this year, both representatives were co-authors of a bill to remove the threat of arrest, jail time, and a criminal record for simple marijuana possession.
