2020 Minnesota TZD Webinar Series: You Can’t Stop What You Don’t Know—Current Alcohol and Drug Trends and Identifiers

Tuesday, November 10, 2020
1:00 - 2:30 p.m. Central Time


About the Webinar

Help us welcome Jermaine Galloway, known as the "Tall Cop," back to Minnesota virtually! This webinar will build on his presentation at last year's conference and dive deeper into recent drug trends. In addition to the knowledge and ability to identify those who might be abusing drugs and/or alcohol, this webinar will educate you on items identified to defeat drug tests and how drug testing can be a part of your prevention program. Participants will also be taught the trends associated with the coronavirus and alcohol and drug abuse as well as new vape trends, including marijuana concentrates and concealment methods. There are several identifiers, logos, and terms that are commonly related to marijuana (leaf and concentrate) abuse, over-the-counter drugs, and vape pens. You won't want to miss it!
