    Abstract

    NIDA Research Monograph 42 is a presentation of their second technical review on development of cannabinoid assays for detection in biological specimens, held in January 1980. In the introduction, the editor discusses the potential utility and significance of use of cannabinoid assays in humans. Whereas determination of past use of Cannabis is now a routine capability (if proper methods are used) he explains why determination of a state of intoxication is much more difficult. The analysis of whole blood and possibly breath or saliva are discussed as potential determinants of intoxication.
