New research shows that the most narcotic drug deaths are the result of a wave of designer synthetic drug analogs manufactured in China and Mexico, which are so much more potent than heroin that accidental overdose deaths have surged. This informative program provides the most up-to-date information on the newest synthetic drugs abused, as well as changes in drug trends involving classic drugs of abuse. An update on changes to the Illinois medical marijuana law, marijuana decriminalization, and other legal updates are also discussed. Participants learn how to recognize and document the symptoms of drug intoxication despite a negative drug test.
