Recorded On 12/17/2020


While it is commonplace to encounter opioids in every day news, attorneys often hear of these drugs on a much too regular basis when it comes to impairment, fatalities, and street drug dealings. Attorneys need to understand the scientific facts about the effects of these drugs, including how they work; how they poison and take the lives of so many; where they fit into postmortem cases; where fentanyl is found; how naloxone works, when does it work and when does it not? Our expert speaker, Allison A. Muller, will address these questions and more at this crash course on the science of opioids for attorneys.

She will address:

1. The 3 effects of opioids on the body

2. Examples of unexpected sources of opioids

3. Example of a drug that can intensify opioid toxicity

4. The pitfalls in interpreting drug screen results as they relate to opioids 5. Some reasons for the presence of morphine in the blood
