Due to the trend of legalizing marijuana, whether for medicinal or recreational use, Extract-ED has identified a need for additional law enforcement and civilian training on marijuana, legalization and overall drug impairment. Its important law enforcement, civilian employers and civilians understand legal marijuana and the rules that govern it. Understanding Legal Marijuana is key to responsible use and protecting the rights of those who choose to use marijuana legally.
Employers are finding themselves in an anomalous position, specifically with employees who are using marijuana medically or recreationally. Marijuana is the most commonly used "illicit" drug. Per a 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 22.2 million people have used marijuana in the past month. This number is likely to increase, as legalization continues and marijuana use becomes more socially acceptable across the nation.
Most law enforcement officers and civilians know very little about cannabis, as it is unique and constantly changing. Our training explains the world of cannabis and includes:
The effects of legalization on society.
Types of cannabis plants.
How cannabis is grown and harvested.
Marijuana extracts and how are they made.
How various forms of cannabis are used.
Cannabis impairment and driving.
How Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol is metabolized and what chemical test results mean.
Medical Marijuana and what law enforcement needs to know.
Employees who are impaired by drugs are much more likely to be involved in
workplace accidents and also have a higher rate of absenteeism. Recognizing Drug
Impairment in the Workplace is key to having a proactive approach in preventing
workplace accidents, rather than only reacting after an incident has occurred.
