Ohio Highway Patrol and Columbus Division of Police Suspend Police Dog Marijuana Detection Training

Given the similarity in smell between marijuana and hemp, and other factors, it may be difficult for police dogs to differentiate the scent. As a result, the Ohio Highway Patrol and Columbus Division of Police have suspended police dog marijuana detection training.

Lt. Craig Cvetan, a spokesman for the Highway Patrol, stated, “The decision to stop imprinting narcotic detection canines with the odor of marijuana was based on several factors.” Such factors include the “odor of marijuana and odor of hemp are the same.” Further, when a canine is trained to detect a specific narcotic, there is no way to de-train so that the canine ceases to react to the narcotic’s odor.
