Identifying Marijuana

Peace officers involved in narcotics investigations or who need training in marijuana identification can attend Marijuana Identification. The course will help participants develop or improve skills to scientifically identify marijuana using chemical and microscopic techniques. 

Participants will use the modified Duquenois-Levine test, the effervescence test, and NIK field testing procedures. In addition, information about Ohio’s new medical marijuana law will also be presented. Instructors will help students develop skills in the microscopic examination of substances. Also, students will participate in hands-on testing and conduct more than 50 microscopic and chemical examinations.
