The Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act enacted January 1, 2014, created new challenges for law enforcement personnel. According to statute, the law enforcement officer must have an independent, cannabis-related factual basis, giving reasonable suspicion that the person is impaired by cannabis. Subsequent to establishing these elements, an officer may ask the driver to submit to Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. Under this statute, the results of SFSTs will be the primary tool in determining impairment. The goal of this 4-hour block of instruction is to provide officers with an overview of the medical marijuana statute.
Upon completion of this training officers will be able to:
· Summarize the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act
· Describe those individuals that may use or possess medical marijuana
· Describe those agencies capable of cultivating and selling medical marijuana
· Describe the limitations for possession and using medical marijuana
· Describe who is banned from the program
· Describe the implied consent provision of the statute
This course DOES NOT include a refresher for Standardized Field Sobriety Testing proficiency.
