The Delta Variant Plant Impairment
Sent on behalf of GTSC and NYS STOP DWI

The NY State STOP-DWI Foundation, Inc., through funding from the NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, is pleased to sponsor a statewide training to benefit local STOP-DWI efforts in New York State. This seminar is free of charge to all STOP-DWI partners engaged in preventing impaired driving.

Delta-9 has been the go-to plant impairment for the last 100 years in American Society. With the enactment of the 2018 Farm Bill more Delta “variants” were discovered and are being used to cause impairment with little ability to identify them in blood/urine testing. The audience will be introduced to Delta 8 and Delta 10 as well as the minor-cannabinoids (THC) and supportive cannabinoids (CBD). While discussing the newest additions to the Delta Variant the audience will be shown examples of impairment by these products. Signs and symptoms of cannabis impairment, as well as driving indicators will be discussed.
