Testing for Levels of Controlled Substances in the System
Interviewer: You mentioned sleep aids such as Lunesta, or perhaps when people have ADHD, they take Adderall, to help them concentrate. Do those kinds of drugs fall into that category, as well?
Shannon: That’s right. If you are prescribed those drugs, you can abuse them or overuse them by accident and it can create some sort situation chemically in your body where you can be adversely affected. If you are charged with a DUI, the state will certainly try to show that you are.
In that case you’re not going to find the drug levels by a breath test. They are going to need to do another type of chemical analysis. It’s either going to have to be a urinalysis test, which the testing of your urine, or a blood test.
