We need the public to demand:
1) that ALL of these recommendations become "SHALL",
2) laws be written, and
3) there be a 2 years time frame for ALL to be implemented.
1. The state should track all driving under the influence (DUI)
and driving under the influence of drugs (DUID) toxicology
outcomes from all
laboratories, including the number of samples submitted, the
number of samples tested, and all sample results.
2. The state should track all DUI and DUID arrest outcomes,
including case filing charges, diversion outcomes, plea
agreements, trial outcomes, and the final case disposition.
3. The state should track all DUI and DUID involved crashes.
4. The state should analyze all collected DUI and DUID data for
the purposes of developing better methods to screen for and
and DUID. The data used in the analysis should be published in
an annual statewide report and guide the future direction of DUI
Cannabis Consumer Education Recommendations:
1. The state should provide responsible sales and consumption
practices training to all cannabis retailers, cannabis
consumption lounges, event organizers, license holders, and home
delivery services, similar to responsible alcohol beverage
2. The state should provide guidelines for advertisers
displaying cannabis related products which includes the legal
consumption age for
cannabis, and information related to the risks of impaired
3. The state should require cannabis retailers, cannabis
consumption lounges, cannabis event organizers, cannabis license
cannabis delivery services to provide educational information to
consumers, which could include pamphlets, posters, digital
and/or other appropriate mediums related to the responsible use
of cannabis and other drugs. Messaging should include:
a. Warnings regarding the dangers of impaired driving, the risks
of underage cannabis use, and possible risks associated with
b. Cannabis consumption sites should provide information
regarding locally available alternate transportation to all
4. The state should provide age appropriate education for youth
and adults on the effects of the use of cannabis, and impact of
5. The state should expand training opportunities related to
impaired driving for the legal and judiciary system, including:
a. Within two years of being appointed and annually thereafter,
all Criminal Justice Officers (judges, defense attorneys, and
prosecutors) should receive training which covers addiction,
drug abuse, behavior modification, factors contributing to
and bias in arrest/prosecution.
6. The state should provide training to persons working in the
medical and pharmacy fields regarding the dangers of impaired
driving by alcohol, cannabis, prescription drugs, and impairing
over the counter (OTC) drugs.
7. The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) should
require traffic schools to add information related to the
dangers of cannabis
and drug impairment to their curriculum and include a victim
impact panel component with their courses
Law Enforcement Recommendations:
1. The Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST)
should require Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) training
(16 hours) be taught in all law enforcement academies in
2. All law enforcement personnel assigned to traffic enforcement
responsibilities should receive Advanced Roadside Impaired
Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) training within one year of being
assigned, and bi-annual continuing education related to impaired
3. The CHP and the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS)
should make all efforts to increase the number of Drug
Recognition Evaluator (DRE) trained officers statewide by four
percent over the next five years. (NOTE:
This recommendation was CHANGED from the Committee's
recommendation of increasing "4% PER YEAR" over the next five
4. An officer certified as a DRE should receive incentive pay
during the time the officer remains certified.
5. Law enforcement should use the best available roadside
presumptive screening device and confirmatory tests in the most
expedient manner for possible drug and alcohol impaired driving
6. Law enforcement should encourage the use of mobile
video/audio recording devices and body worn cameras to
impaired driving incidents and investigations, whenever
7. Oral fluid and breath analytical devices are being developed.
These devices should be studied by law enforcement, crime
and academics to gauge their ability to assist officers with
detecting impaired drivers. Additionally, further studies should
be conducted to
determine if oral fluid is a suitable medium for collection of a
chemical test sample pursuant to CVC Section 23612.
1. The state should provide additional funding to state and
local government crime laboratories conducting forensic
toxicology to purchase more efficient and sensitive testing
equipment and to provide funding for personnel to conduct
forensic toxicology testing.
2. The state should establish well defined evidence collection
procedures for DUID, similar to the procedures found in
California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 17, relating to
3. Crime laboratories conducting forensic toxicology testing
should test blood samples for alcohol and all Tier I compounds,
in at least one
recommended matrix, at the prescribed threshold concentrations,
for both screening and confirmation testing.
4. If blood is going to be collected as part of a DUI or DUID
investigation, it should be collected as soon as possible after
the arrest, and should include an extended drug panel, with
confirmatory and quantitative high-performance liquid
chromatography–mass spectrometry or gas chromatography–mass
spectrometry used to confirm positive results.
5. Crime laboratories conducting forensic toxicology testing
should continue to evaluate National Safety Council
related to forensic toxicology testing and when new standards
are recommended, laboratories should strive to implement those
6. Drugs affect people differently depending on the type of drug
consumed, a person’s tolerance, the method of ingestion, and
factors. As such, a per se limit for drugs, other than ethanol,
should not be enacted at this time. However, the state should
advance research in this area in the event science finds it can
establish drug per se limits
1. The state should continue to fund impaired driving research
projects for the purposes of learning new information related to
how best to detect and test DUI and DUID drivers.
2. New DUI and DUID research studies should consider key issues
including the time elapsed since the substance use: the method
administration; dosage; and most importantly, how test results
relate to impaired driving including the best methods to
3. Behavioral, physiological, and chemical testing research
should address issues of validity and reliability, performance
environmental conditions, and follow best practices for test
development as established by relevant academic and/or
California Highway Patrol Recommendations:
In addition to the IDTF recommendations, the CHP has proposed
the following recommendations for consideration:
1. The state should require coroners and medical examiners to
perform drug and alcohol testing for all fatally injured
drivers, passengers, and pedestrians involved in traffic
crashes. The results should continue to be reported to the CHP.
2. Law enforcement agencies with traffic enforcement
responsibilities should develop and implement law enforcement
programs for the purposes of securing timely blood samples and
preserving evidence of impairment.
3. Codify the use of oral fluid drug screening devices making
them analogs to preliminary alcohol screening devices used for
screening, refer to CVC Section 23612(h) and 23612(i) for
4. The state should establish an ongoing Impaired Driving
Working Group, headed by the California OTS, which should
include the CHP,
California Department of Justice (DOJ), California DMV, and
others as determined by the California OTS, for the purposes of
processes, identifying areas of need, and highlighting funding
priorities for the California OTS and the CHP’s respective grant

About our Guest: Jesse "Jay"
LeBlanc III, BSME
Jesse graduated summa cum laude from the University of Houston
with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering in
1998. For over 20 years, he provided services as both an
employee and consultant on the inspection, repair, design, and
operation of chemical, refined products (gasoline and diesel
fuel), and crude oil pipelines for ExxonMobil Pipeline Company.
He also performed risk assessments and hazardous operation
reviews for multiple pipeline related projects. While an
employee at ExxonMobil, he received numerous awards as an
engineering mentor and for his novel solutions that solved
several engineering problems.
Before obtaining his mechanical engineering degree, he worked
for 17 years in the aircraft industry as a Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) licensed Airframe and Powerplant technician
and as an Authorized Inspector. During this time period, he was
certified to maintain and repair multiple turbine-powered
helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, including turboprops and
business jets. Prior to and during this time period, he was a
FAA licensed Private Pilot.
Jesse also recently contributed a chapter, “THC & CBD
Decomposition and Terpene Hazards While Vaping or Dabbing”, to
the medical text book edited by Dr. Ken Finn, “Cannabis in
Medicine, and Evidence Based Approach”. He also has written
articles for the parent support group, Every Brain Matters, one
of which was an expose’ on Delta-8-THC, Delta-9-THC, and THC-O

this book sometimes on Ebay, Abe's Books, or Amazon:
My comments regarding Chapters 12 and 13 of “Pot Safari”: (read
the attached summary first)
Having programmed in at least four different computer languages
over the past twenty plus years, including at my current
consulting job, the similarities between computer-based
programming and the human endocrine system are hard to ignore.
They both incorporate, for example, “timers” that determine when
specific changes are to occur (such as puberty or menstruation)
and many “if–then” statements where “if” a specific condition
exists, “then” a specific action is taken. Based on the past
and present science, one can readily identify the fact that
cannabinoids are potential endocrine disrupters; they can hijack
the user’s endocrine system and modify hormonal “timers” along
with hormonal “if-then” statements, all with ill effects. Why
is this havoc being caused by a so-called “natural” or
If one looks purely at the science behind the marijuana or hemp
plants vast array of cannabinoids (and terpenes), it is evident
that these chemicals are the plant’s natural defense system
against herbivores. The effects caused by some of these
cannabinoids, such as THC, illustrate how these plants have
evolved over millennia to protect itself; these chemicals can
prevent its enemies from reproducing or having offspring that
can survive long-term in the wild. This simple conclusion is
clearly supported in chapters 12 and 13 in “Pot Safari”.
Futher, another indication that this conclusion may indeed be
true is the fact that coincidentally, several of the THC
and CBD isomers (an isomer is a molecule or compound which has
the same molecular formula, but generally behave differently)
are related to some type of hormone associated with reproduction
and/or sexual development. In the case of THC and CBD, there
are several other organic chemical molecules that have the same
molecular formula, C21H30O2:
Cannabis Related Isomers:
cannabidiol (Abn-CBD) - a synthetic positional isomer of
– One of hundreds of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant
(CBL) – One of hundreds of cannabinoids found in the cannabis
Progestin or Progesterone Related Isomers:
– a form of progestin (synthesized progesterone) that was never
– a type of progestin and is the active form of the drug
dydrogesterone (a progestin medication) after it has been
processed by the body (metabolite).
– the metabolite of the progestin drug levonorgestrel (a
hormonal medication used for birth control)
– the metabolite of a clinically used but discontinued progestin
ethisterone, a drug intended to treat gynecological disorders.
a steroidal progestin that was never marketed
– a sex hormone involved in the human menstrual cycle,
pregnancy, and the embryonic development of humans and other
- a progesterone that was never marketed
– a progesterone that was never marketed
Steroidal Estrogen Related Isomers:
a synthetic steroidal estrogen that was never marketed
- a synthetic steroidal estrogen that was never marketed
Anabolic Steroid Related Isomers:
– a synthetic anabolic-androgenic steroid, which has similar
effects on the human body as testosterone. It was never
In summary, there are a total of fifteen common isomers with
this molecular formula in the list above. Of the fifteen, five
(one-third) are related to the cannabis plant and ten
(two-thirds) are related to some type of endocrine system
hormone, which is considered a regulator, signaling, or simply
stated, a control hormone. In the hormone group, five are
related to progesterone or the synthesized progestin (a female
hormone), two are synthetic steroidal estrogens (used in female
hormone replacement therapies and are known to be human
carcinogens), and one is a synthetic anabolic steroid (male
hormone). This is a coincidence that needs to be fully
investigated; it may be a red warning flag for mankind to heed.
Isomers, and Acetylation Simplified Version-1/25/22
CBD, which is now federally legal today, can be
converted --or "isomerized"--into various THC
derivatives. These derivatives are also being made 3
times stronger by the "acetylation" process.
Because of the isomerization and acetylation processes,
federally legal CBD-based products are getting people
mentally and physically impaired. Today, any person can
easily purchase CBD derived Delta-8-THC, Delta-10-THC,
and acetylated THC products, such as vape cartridges,
either locally or online.
How does the chemistry happen exactly? Let me explain...

1. A chemical synthesized from a surplus plant material
using an acid and an organic solvent, such as toluene,
which is usually used in the manufacture of paint
products. This chemical may exists naturally in the
