As marijuana sources expand to medical-use and legal recreational-use, attorneys encounter more cases involving these substances and their role in impairment. What are the differences between marijuana metabolites? What are some pearls in interpreting drug testing results? How do the various sources of marijuana (edibles, "joints", oils) differ in potency and effects on the body? What is the science behind the marijuana breath testing device? What are synthetic cannabinoids and how do they compare with marijuana? These and other questions will be answered in this one-hour presentation.

Learning objectives:

  1. State the scientific name of the parent marijuana compound and 2 major metabolites
  2. Cite 2 differences between marijuana and synthetic cannabinoids
  3. Identify 1 similarity between marijuana and synthetic cannabinoids
  4. Provide 1 reason why determining impairment based on marijuana levels (or its metabolites) is challenging.
