The need for tests to determine if a person is driving while high on drugs is something that has come up quite often recently. Unlike blood alcohol concentration tests, there aren't any reliable tests that can determine a person's current intoxication level for drugs like marijuana.

While law enforcement officers often use these tests to decide if you should be charged with DUI, there are times where the test may not provide the accurate results needed to prove a case against an individual.
