Ed Frawley’s Narcotics Dog - Otis

The DEA issues licenses to individuals that allow them to posses narcotics for drug dog training. The people who apply for these liscenes will need to pass a criminal history background check by law enforcement. They will also have to explain where they obtained their training and how they intend on storing the drugs in their possession. They will also have to list all of the people that work in the facility that the drugs are stored in and there is a possibility that those people will also have a criminal history check.

Before the DEA will issue a license, an individual will have to obtain a state license to posses narcotics for dog training. In the State of Wisconsin, the state agency in charge of this is "The Controlled Substances Board." In other states the agency goes by other names. To find out what your state agency is, call your local pharmacy and ask them the name of the state agency that licenses them to have narcotics. It will be that agency that grants the license. The requirements for this license vary from state to state. Some states are much, much more strict on who they issue these licenses to and how much narcotics they will allow dog trainers to posses. Wisconsin is getting very strict on who is allowed to hold a "Controlled Substance License."

The DEA always requires the state license before it will issue their license.
