House Bill 1, the Compassionate use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, better known as the Illinois medical Marijuana Law, went into effect January 1, 2014. The law significantly changes Illinois DUI law (720 ILCS 11-501), the corresponding Implied Consent law, and the Statutory Summary Suspension law. This new, half-day law enforcement training class will provide police officers with the knowledge and tools to properly identify and process the medical marijuana card holding driver who is operating a motor vehicle while impaired on cannabis. This class will cover: - Overview of the Medical Marijuana Law and packaging requirements - Review of the new law on open cannabis containers in a motor vehicle - Establishing reasonable suspicion at roadside to arrest for driving while impaired on medical marijuana - Issuance of the new Medical Marijuana Warning to Motorist - When to charge 11-501 (a4) vs. 11-501 (a6) in a medical marijuana DUI-cannabis case - Properly administering post-arrest sobriety tests at the station per the new law - Report writing and courtroom testimony recommendations Each officer will receive a text book and copies of the new law and the changes it makes on DUI, summary suspension, and implied consent laws. A DUI-cannabis arrest flow chart will also be provided to each officer. Each class participant will receive a CD with PowerPoint slides and supporting text for in-service training of their agency's patrol officers. Participants should be department trainers who are prepared to teach as there is no basic instructor training provided in this class. This course has been submitted for certification through the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board. If approved, it will not be reimbursable by the ILETSB.
