Advanced Marijuana Impaired Driving Detection for Law Enforcement - Online   

This is an online independent study, self-paced course.

Completely updated in the summer of 2021, this course builds upon the topics discussed in IPTM’s Marijuana Impaired Driving Detection for Law Enforcement, to include physiology, duration of effects, administration routes and impairment cues. We will examine the latest forms of cannabis, provide you with advanced impairment detection cues, and discuss how politics are driving the legalization movement across the U.S. We will discuss various medicinal marijuana laws and the information available to you in marijuana databases.

You will learn about the evolving forms of cannabis, including tinctures, THC-A, vaping, and more potent forms such as dabs. We will examine the 302 Study and how it correlates with cannabis impairment cues in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST). Advanced cannabis impairment-related driving detection options, including proper administration of SFSTs, modified Rhomberg Balance, Finger-to-Nose and Lack of Convergence tests will also be discussed.

At the conclusion of this course, you will be better prepared to detect drivers that are impaired by cannabis usage as well as investigate, document, and prepare effective cases for prosecution.
