The drug test that's as simple as the Breathalyzer


 What kinds of drugs does it detect? 
The technology was originally developed to detect the byproduct of a smoker's nicotine, but researchers have gone beyond that. They claim the device can detect marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methadone (the heroin substitute used to treat addicts). The developer, a U.K. company called Intelligent Fingerprinting, also says that the device might soon be able to detect ecstasy and amphetamines.

Oh happy days.
How amazing and wonderful that this technology exists.
No more nasty privacy issues now.
