DRI3475 - Welcome to the New Normal: Synthetic Drugs of Abuse

Standard: $50.00

Description

Law enforcement officers and first responders across the country face serious challenges as they interact with suspects and patients under the influence of illegal drugs. Those challenges have increased in recent years as the proliferation of synthetic drug abuse abounds. These drugs have enhanced side effects and rarely show up on standard drug screenings. This webinar will present a general overview of synthetic drugs of abuse as well as some case-based discussion. We will also discuss limitations of drug testing and predictions for what is to come regarding illicit drug use. We will also discuss best practices for attorneys defending excessive force, false arrest, and malicious prosecution cases (among others) involving plaintiffs under the influence of these types of drugs.

Objectives:

  • Review of current synthetic drugs of abuse
  • Be able to recognize different signs and symptoms to specific drugs
  • Best practices for discovery and preservation of evidence in civil rights cases involving synthetic drugs of abuse
  • Common legal issues in defending civil rights cases involving these drugs
