Abstract

A method for determining the presence or absence of an illicit plant-derived compound in a sample. The method includes the steps of: (i) providing a sample potentially containing an illicit plant-derived compound; (ii) extracting DNA in the illicit plant-derived compound from the identified sample; (iii) amplifying, using PCR, the target plant DNA sequence from the extracted DNA; and (iv) detecting an amplified target plant DNA sequence, where detection of the amplified target plant DNA sequence indicates the presence of the illicit plant-derived compound.
