It includes illegal drugs such as heroin, meth and even “bath salts.” It also includes prescription drugs, which can be abused by those with a prescription or, frequently, those who steal or obtain them from others. And often, drugs are mixed with alcohol, which by itself remains a menacing problem. There’s no doubt—drugged driving is increasing across the country and making impaired driving a more complicated issue to address.
