The RCMP has confirmed it will test three roadside screening devices by checking saliva for presence of drugs such as marijuana. Doug Beirness (BARE'-nus), vice-chairman of the Canadian Society of Forensic Science's Drugs and Driving Committee, says the Mounties and the Ontario government funded the research. He says police will the devices especially as Canada aims to legalize marijuana.
