An official from Cannabix Technologies Inc comments 

“In the last several months we have seen the states of Oregon, New Jersey, New York and Arizona legalize recreational use of marijuana and several other states like Virginia, New Mexico, Montana and Connecticut have taken steps to either legalize or decriminalize cannabis possession in some way. This has led to recent reports from AAA and IIHS outlining the impact of driving performance under the influence of cannabis. Furthermore, employers are re-examining their drug testing policies, procedures and tools. There is a massive sea-change happening in the U.S. related to cannabis use and Cannabix Technologies is at the forefront of developing the tools to aid public safety and create more relevant and fairer cannabis testing technology,” stated CEO Rav Mlait.
