Criminal Practice – Drug Possession – NarTest – Cocaine — Visual ID – Marijuana – Sentencing – Trial by Jury – Restitution – Private Lab (access required)

State v. Jones Law enforcement identified the substances seized from defendant using the NarTest NTX 2000, and the state presented that evidence at trial. Neither the officer who used the NarTest nor the NarTest chemist who explained the machine showed that the NarTest was sufficiently reliable as an area for expert testimony. However, the state may prove that a substance is marijuana based on visual inspection.
