As marijuana sources expand to medical-use and legal recreational-use, attorneys encounter more cases involving these substances and their role in impairment.

Questions arise concerning the differences between marijuana metabolites; how drug testing results can be interpreted; how 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?

Our expert speaker, Allison A. Muller, will address these and other topics during the presentation, including:

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