Montgomery County Department of Police’s Cannabis Intoxication Impaired Driving Labs are unique employee training programs that promote community engagement, increase citizen participation in understanding police activity, and work to enhance traffic safety while aiming to deter impaired driving.  

Cannabis Intoxication Impaired Driving Labs are the first law enforcement-hosted training that address cannabis impaired driving behavior and recognition of cannabis abuse by partnering with medically certified cannabis patients.  

Volunteer patients will consume cannabis and members of law enforcement will be able to observe real-time impairment. Law enforcement will also have the opportunity to explain how cannabis consumption can negatively affect patients' abilities to operate motor vehicles safely.  

Media, please contact the Public Information Division to confirm attendance. You must be on the list to attend.
