Roadside drug test Cannabis & Cocaine

The new roadside drug test in the UK has now been in force since the 2nd March 2015  and already police across the UK have already tested some drivers and found them to be positive for either Cannabis or Cocaine.

The new drug test kits that the police are using will initially be used to test just for Cannabis and Cocaine at the roadside.

In the longer term the police may also decide to screen for Opiates, benzodiazepines, amphetamine and metamphetamine at the roadside.

The saliva drug test that the police use has a short window of detection, and so is a good guide at to whether the driver is under the influence of drugs, in a similar way to a breathalyser shows if a driver is under the influence of alcohol.
