Blood samples from 425 suspected drugged drivers who were clinically impaired and negative for alcohol were analysed.
Fifty-six percent of the samples were positive for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Tetrahydrocannabinol-positive blood samples were analysed for amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine metabolites and opiates.
Eighty-two percent of the samples were found to be positive for one or more drugs in addition to THC, and the concentrations of these drugs were often high.
