Everyone knows that drinking and driving is a risky action. In just a few easy steps, a police officer can determine just how intoxicated a driver is. This can end up with a mulititude of fines and even jail times. However, the use of marijuana while driving has been a more difficult thing to prove for law enforcement officers. This may change in the near future due to the research and development of a new THC detecting machine that has been developed by a group of graduate students from the University of Akron. The students have received grant money in order to further develop and possibly market this device in the future. Although the NBA does not test for THC during the season, this may be of interest to organizations like Bruce Levenson’s Atlanta Hawks. This could be a monumental invention by the students, which could lead to even more safe driving conditions for all citizens. Since there is a legal limit of marijuana when driving, the device will be able to detect the amount of THC, which is a chemical in marijuana, to determine if the driver is above or below the legal limit. This will definitely change the effectiveness of the police’s enforcement of the roadways.
