The World's First Cannabis Breathalyzer May Be A Game Changer

On the Green Entrepreneur Podcast, guest Dr.Mike Lynn talks about Hound Labs' potentially revolutionary invention.


Dr. Mike Lynn is the founder of Hound Labs, which manufactures the world’s first marijuana breathalyzer. Called The Hound, the device uses technology that makes it 1 billion times more sensitive than today’s alcohol breathalyzers. It works by identifying recent (not past) marijuana use by measuring THC in breath. The invention could be a game-changer for law enforcement and employers to address marijuana safety concerns without unjustly accusing people who are using cannabis responsibly.
