Sean Neiswenter, Momilani Tupu (both Life Sciences), Chad Cross (Epidemiology & Biostatistics), and two colleagues from the Clark County office of the coroner and medical examiner published the article "Postmortem THC in Decedents following Legalization of Recreatinoal Cannabis in Clark County, Nevada" in the Journal of Forensic Sciences. This study examined the presence of THC/COOH-THC in decedents before and after legalization of recreational marijuana in Nevada. The results provide valuable insight on the use of toxicological data from decedents as a method for surveying marijuana use by the general public. Tupu is an undergraduate.
