[Usefulness of the initial medical examination on matters relating to persons suspected of driving under the influence of amphetamine and its analogs or delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol based on the materials the Department of Forensic Medicine, Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin].

Ann Acad Med Stetin 2013 ;59(2):147-56

Introduction: Polish law forbids persons to drive under the influence of intoxicating substances, and those after the use of substances producing effects similar to alcohol. Therefore, there is a need to give an opinion based on a blood test, to establish whether or not the person from whom the blood was taken was under the influence of an intoxicating substance or after use of the drug while driving. Some authors reported that the final opinion should take into account chemical and toxicology test results identifying the parent compound and/or the metabolite only, but also the sampling time of the material to be analyzed in relation to the driving time, the result of the medical examination conducted prior to the collection of material for analysis, and the results of screening tests executed at the scene.
