Detecting Cannabis Impairment with Ken Fichtler

This week’s guest is Ken Fichtler, founder and CEO of Gaize, a Montana based startup that recently launched a cannabis impairment detection product. Ken served as chief business development officer for four years during the Bullock administration and is a seasoned vet of the Montana entrepreneurship scene. Before they dive into Gaize, Justin asks Ken about his shift from entrepreneurship to public service and what he sees as the macro-level trends of employment. Ken talks about a question that lead him to Gaize — the fact that he wasn’t aware of any system that existed to detect cannabis impairment — and how now he’s created the world’s largest dataset of cannabis impaired eye movement.
