This course will increase student awareness in the rapidly changing field of synthetic street drugs: commonly known as Spice, Bath Salts, K2, Cloud 9, Mojo (synthetic cannabinoids), Flakka (alpha PVP), and fentanyl. As new synthetic drugs and trends surge upon the scene, law enforcement, emergency medical personnel and prosecuting attorneys require the most contemporary training in the identification, chemical analysis, and prosecution of offenders who manufacture, distribute, and abuse such substances.
The abuse of synthetic drugs has been linked to violent crimes, medical emergencies, and deaths across the United States and around the world. These dangerous and commercially available designer drugs pose unique challenges to law enforcement and the medical community as manufacturers manipulate chemical equations and formulas to avoid prosecution under common drug laws and pharmacological changes create changing physical and psychological dependencies in users which are not common to traditional substance abuse diagnosis.
