Driving, or attempting to drive, under the influence of drugs, or being in charge of a motor vehicle on a public road with drugs in your system is a criminal offence, as set out by the Road Traffic Act 1988. In 2015, the enforcement of drug driving offences are now in line with that of drink driving, and you can be issued with the same fines, bans or prison sentences.
