New Drager Device Will Tell Police If You Are High

If you recall, Drager is the company that makes Ignition Interlock Devices and Breathalyzers. Now, Drager has created a machine that police can use to help determine if you are high while driving. Up until now, the police needed to get a Drug Recognition Expert to make that determination. This can often be a hassle. Then we need blood work to determine what drugs are in your system. However, if NJ decides to approve this machine one day, that job just got easier.

This new machine, Drager Drug Test 5000, uses a mouth swab to determine whether you are high. Some cities have already stated using it, such as New York City, Los Angeles and San Diego. The test can detect weed, cocaine, opiates, methamphetamine, amphetamine, methadone and even benzodiazepines. 

We will see if NJ starts using this.
