Under Development: Roadside THC Detector


Sometime next year, a Colorado company hopes to have a prototype of a hand-held device that can test a person’s THC level. Lifeloc Technologies, of Wheat Ridge, CO makes blood alcohol content detectors and recently won a grant from the state to create a similar device for marijuana. 

Barry Knott is President and CEO of Lifeloc.  He says law enforcement has no way to test for THC during a traffic stop. Knott spoke with APR's Roger Adams.
