Last summer, CDEX's meth gun
was marginally more than a drawing board creation made real, but now the drug scanner is actually being used in field tests before it hits the production line later this year. Reportedly, the device is being tested in Arizona, and it seems as though the trials are going quite smoothly. It's also noted that future iterations could actually posses the ability to "test other drugs as well, even explosives," but the current flavor should eventually cost somewhere between $500 and $600, which is still a great deal cheaper than we had previously heard.
