Cannabis is Legal in all the New England States and Canada: Can you detect and articulate its impairment? 


Canada, Maine, Mass, and Vermont have commercial cannabis while the rest of New England has some form of medicinal. There are more Cannabis using drivers on Maines roads than ever before. Today’s forms (including edibles and concentrates) have a much higher level of THC than the past. In short: more cannabis available and less needed to get high

A “Mixed” (Wet and Green) Lab In compliance with state marijuana possession laws, we present a “mixed”impairment lab designed for officers to practice impairment detection skills on volunteers dosed with known amounts of alcohol, cannabis, or a mixture of both. This will provide the attendees with a gauge of the reliability of their detection skills. The lab is run by civilian instructors. Attendees are not exposed to marijuana (or any drug) during training.
