Staffordshire Police have secured the first conviction in the county for drug driving.
The conviction follows the introduction of a new law to make it easier for police to catch and convict drug drivers in England and Wales earlier this year.
New drug testing devices have been tested by officers from the force’s Road Crime Team. They allow officers to test if a driver is under the influence of drugs at the roadside.
The clear message is do not take drugs and drive.
Anyone concerned about their use of any drugs can contact our local services for help and advice.
