Philips Testing Out New Unnamed Roadside Drug Test

Philips develops roadside drug test

If you ever went so far as to drive in a different lane, cops would immediately pull you out and roadside test you for alcohol use. Plenty of celebrities have been tested positive for this quick alcohol test. I don’t think I still need to name them. Anyway, I have always wondered when they can create something like that for drug tests too. Telling a person she/he will be undergoing drug test takes away the element of surprise, which is very important in cases like that. They can undergo cleansing methods in order for future tests not to determine just how addicted they are to drugs.

Philips now has a test they are developing to determine the one’s alcohol level intake. It uses nanotechnology. However, instead of blowing into it, you actually have to spit on the test (which is a little unhygienic for my part). After 90 seconds, the device will give a color-coded read out. It detects cocaine, cannabis, amphetamines and metamphetamine.

Philips is hoping to release this to cops in Europe by the end of this year. No word yet though if it will ever cross US shores. Price will be announced once its released, so stay tuned.
