Michigan State Police taking additional steps to rectify possible inaccuracies in THC results
The Michigan State Police says its taking steps to ensure transparency and accuracy after temporarily halting its THC toxicology testing.
This is after the department found toxicology reports may have been inaccurately converting CBD, which does not cause a high, to THC.
Marquette County Prosecutor Matt Wiese says current cases using results will be delayed and pending cases will be reviewed.
Wiese adds defense associations have been notified and can have their cases reviewed as well.
“I’m fairly confident that we won’t find a lot of cases that need to be looked at again and reopened but certainly each prosecuting attorney will handle that differently in their county.” said Matt Wiese.
Wiese says prosecutors don’t rely on drug testing alone and have to prove signs of impairment.
