Is this a good idea?
CANADA - A training program in which officers observe volunteers who may be high on drugs, and is used in 30 U.S. states, has the Edmonton Police Service and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in a public relations nightmare.

Acting police chief Mike Bradshaw says "the training is meant to help police officers identify how people behave when they are on drugs."

Bradshaw is also quoted saying police did not provide the men and women - some of them prostitutes - with any drugs during a training session in December.

Cpl. Wayne Oakes of the RCMP clarified the issue of who gave the volunteers the dugs, claiming the police officers were not even present when the drugs were administered, the volunteers used their own drugs.

Bradshaw says the police the Metis society provided the for volunteers, however not all aboriginal. They may or may not have been high during the session.

The volunteers were anonymous and were not promised anything in return for their participation.

An internal investigation has been launched into the program because of one complaint -- not from any of the volunteers -- although police said that's a standard procedure

Canada allows people to be under the influence of a prohibited substance for training? Non registered narcotics of unknown dosage and consistency being sanctioned by a law enforcement organization sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen. This cannot be real, not even for Canada.

In Texas for the intoxilyzer training, have the class gets drunk one day and the other half gets drunk the next day. On each day the sober officers test the drunk officers over and over again on the intoxilyzer. The course, put on by Texas DPS, supplies the alcohol and lunch to those who will be getting drunk. Of course the measure of alcohol is set up so that one only achieves a .08. Similar to this, just not illegal. LOL

Only in Texas will you be provided alcohol while in training. LOL

stopped it in TN...I tried to volunteer. You know take one for the team....
