Marijuana Breathalyzer announced - VPR

Scientists at the University of Pittsburgh say they have invented a marijuana counterpart to the alcohol Breathalyzer, used by police to determine the level of intoxicants. Sure, you can blow into it - but will the results be accurate? 

"The device uses carbon nanotubes, which are 1/100,000 the size of human hair, to recognize the presence of THC, even when other substances are in the breath, such as alcohol. The THC molecule binds to the surface of the tubes, altering their electrical properties."

    This is just the excuse needed for our lame legislature to feel good about passing a marijuana commercialization bill that will hurt every Vermonter. Marijuana is NOT safe. Anyone in the legislature who votes to commercialize is anti-family and needs to be voted out of office. I don’t need governments permission to have fun. Because this bill has nothing to do with medical treatment/pain. We already have that right. And when parents punish their kids for ingesting THC products, our Vermont legislature will pass another law making it criminal to discipline our kids. Its about money and power and control over the family. Mind your own business and stop passing law that compromises family and public safety. Sale your residence now before property values crash and the bus lines become loaded with clients on their way to the flourishing CBD/THC stores that will proliferate our neighborhoods.
