China invents new device to catch drug addicts

China invents new device to catch drug addicts
March 28, 2006 - hindustantimes.com

Chinese scientists have invented a device that can detect a drug user simply from the way his pupils react to certain rays.
The technology, developed by scientists in south-western Yunnan province, bordering the ill-famed 'Golden Triangle', has proved successful in six pilot projects in local villages, and have passed the assessment of the Ministry of Public Security, the state media reported on Monday.

In the tests, 891 cannabis smokers were mixed with 826 non-drug takers. The device was able to catch 93.94 per cent of the addicts if they smoked the drug the day before the test, and 88.52 per cent of them if they did it six days before.

No non-drug takers were mistaken for smoking the drug in the tests, scientists with the Department of Science and Technology said.

For addicts to opium or its related drugs, lights of certain wavelength and intensity make their pupils expand and contract, they said, adding that the new device can find out "how much a person is addicted to drugs."

The technology is obviously more advanced than similar detection techniques applied by police across the country, and it will be a good help if promoted nationwide, the scientists said.

Okay... SO HOW MANY FALSE POSITIVES DID IT PRODUCE?

Scientific news reporting is so bad.

isn't this the same as the drug testing they want to implement in Florida?

I remember reading about it over a year ago.

I will see if I can find the article.

Depends if they're honest though.

Based on pupil dilation? Zero false positives? I'm calling bullshit.

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."

I like how they change from "smokers" to "addicts."
