Cannabis Training for Law Enforcement and Green Lab

With legalization, law enforcement officers will contact more drivers who have used a cannabis product.  By using live, legal cannabis consumers, this course trains officers to better understand and recognize cannabis impairment.

Cannabis Training for Law Enforcement and Green Lab is set for 8:15 am December 13 in St. Peters, Missouri.

Enrollment is now open!

This course is $325 per student and is limited to 20 students.

Missouri officers receive 2 technical, and 4 skill development POST hours.
 
 
WHAT TO EXPECT

Attendees will be in seat for the first two hours of this training reviewing the following topics:

Toxicology, chemical tests, and issues with legislating a number for THC in blood.
Marijuana Impairment Indicators (302 Study)
A brief review of Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs)

During lunch, students will be released to tour local legal medical marijuana facilities.

This is a unique opportunity for students to engage cannabis facility personnel and ask questions.  

While students tour these facilities, instructors will be monitoring the legal consumption of cannabis by Missouri Medical Marijuana Qualified Patient Volunteers.  Methods of consumption and product type will be documented and reviewed with the students at the completion of the course.
(All Department of Health and Senior Services Rules and Regulations are strictly adhered to)

Once the consumers are transported to the classroom, students will be broken into groups.  Each volunteer will be assigned an instructor.  Students are able to interact with the volunteer consumers and will administer sobriety tests.  Each time a student administers tests, the results will be recorded and reviewed at the end of the course.

All observations during these tests are documented, kept on record, and used in future training.  (Hence the importance of administering tests correctly).  After the first session (1 hour), the volunteers will be transported back to the consumption location for a second dose.  Students will discuss the first lab session with instructors.

Students will again administer tests on the volunteers, after the second consumption.  All tests and results will once again be documented and reviewed at the end of the course.

Once the second lab is complete, there is a review of how much cannabis each volunteer consumed, how they consumed it, observations of the officers, and if the volunteer was believed to be impaired.  

This is a unique opportunity for Law Enforcement and Cannabis Industry Personnel to interact.  We encourage positive discussions from both.

Missouri Law Enforcement Officers will receive 6 POST hours, 2 technical, and 4 skill development, on completion of this training.
