The Colorado Office of Economic Development has awarded Lifeloc Technologies a $250,000 grant to develop breathalyzers which will be used to measure cannabis intoxication levels. Lifeloc already produces breathalyzers used by law enforcement and employers to detect alcohol impairment.

The grant, which requires matching funds from the company, will allow Lifeloc Technologies to speed-up the development of a tool that will be marketed to law enforcement, corrections, schools and workplaces.

“There is no equivalent of a marijuana breathalyzer today. Law enforcement does not have a fast, reliable and noninvasive THC impairment test available at roadside,” Lifeloc president Barry Knott said in a statement.
