In this course, we will examine the latest forms of cannabis and provide you with advanced impairment detection cues. We will discuss Florida’s Medicinal Marijuana Law and the information available to you in Florida’s Marijuana Database. We will build upon the topics discussed in IPTM’s Marijuana Impaired Driving Detection for Law Enforcement, including physiology, duration of effects, administration routes and impairment cues.

You will learn about the evolving forms of cannabis, including tinctures, THC-A, vaping, and more potent forms such as dabs. We will examine Florida’s Medicinal Marijuana Law, including specific terminology; discuss how to identify medicinal marijuana and its distributors; and explore the legal impacts on patients and law enforcement.
