February 2, 2002

This cannabiswealth piece further discusses the findings of the JAMA paper and mentions how our system, designed to uniquely find only the active forms of THC is a key solution.

Our CTO, Lex was quoted

“This latest clinical trial only reinforces the desperate need for new, fairer roadside testing. Our innovative LuciX Technology will more accurately detect levels of THC (and associated cannabinoids) as well as active impairment. 

Easily usable outside of a laboratory environment, police forces and workplaces will be able to fairly screen for impairment. We truly believe we have the answer to ending the unfair criminalisation of cannabis patients worldwide.”
