What all can be detected? Drugs? Or just alcohol?

Furthermore, is this an appropriate post on this site? I tried googling all sorts of terms like blow n go detecting drugs and ignition interlock blah blah. Couldn't find anything.

It's a breathalyzer

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignition_interlock_device

"An ignition interlock device or breath alcohol ignition interlock device (IID and BAIID) is a breathalyzer for an individual's vehicle. It requires the driver to blow into a mouthpiece on the device before starting the vehicle. If the resultant breath-alcohol concentration analyzed result is greater than the programmed blood alcohol concentration (which varies between countries), the device prevents the engine from being started."

Why do you ask?

I serously hope you're not planning on driving under the influence. That's 100% fucking retarded regardless of what you're on. A car is a 3,000lb chunk of metal zooming around on wheels. It's heavy machinery. It takes zero effort to kill somebody with a car, it takes a lot of effort and luck to not kill someone if you're under the influence. People who knowingly drive under the influence for the hell of it should drive themselves off a bridge before their stupidity kills other people.

Not planning on driving. Friend is going to drive in about 6 hours- trying to determine whether or not it'll be okay when she goes to drive away in the morning.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
