Oklahoma Department of Public Safety

Hound Labs

State lawmakers want Oklahoma to be among the first in the U.S. to implement a marijuana breathalyzer test.

Through a spending bill, they're directing the Department of Public Safety to spend $300,000 on testing units made by Oakland, California–based Hound Labs, which are expected to be available late this year.

REAL ID–compliant driver's licenses and state identification cards should be available to Oklahomans beginning July 1.

The Department of Public Safety is in a pilot production phase of the new ID cards at its Oklahoma City office before rolling them out to the public.

"The April 1 deadline got pushed back for us because we couldn’t have these offices open to the general public with COVID," said Oklahoma Secretary of Public Safety Chip Keating.
