RIFIDAS – Rapid In-Field IDentification of Addictive Substances
The processing of criminal offenses related to addictive substances causes substantial personnel and financial expenditures for the Austrian executive. A major cause for this is that currently there is no method that would allow the police to quickly and safely distinguish between legal and illegal substances.
Goals of the project: Development of a handheld-tool for quick assessment and classification of THC- or CBD-Cannabis by police officers.
