The Las Vegas Review-Journal and ProPublica will host a public forum on unreliable police drug test kits in Las Vegas on Feb. 16.

The event is based on a recent investigation about how the Las Vegas criminal justice system uses $2 roadside drug kits to jail thousands of people annually — years after the city’s police crime lab flagged them for producing false positives.
