Paper Abstract

The presence of illegal drugs is a growing problem, no longer confined to urban areas. Drug abuse is common in schools and colleges, workplaces, and homes. Drug trafficking has expanded beyond national borders to a variety of transportation and residential hubs. In order to deal with the prevalence of drugs, we need to identify where drugs are being used, stored, and transferred; we need a detection system that is easy to use, portable, accurate, and highly sensitive.
