Gardaí arrest driver in Cork who tests positive for cocaine, cannabis, opiates and tranquillisers

It should go without saying that this is illegal.

Gardaí confirmed through their official Twitter account that they arrested a driver who tested positive for all four drug test categories on Tuesday.

The driver, who was arrested in Cork, also wasn't carrying a driver's licence, and provided no evidence of insurance.

In a tweet published on Tuesday evening, Gardaí noted: "Midleton RPU stopped a driver who tested positive for all four drug categories and negative for a driving licence and insurance. Driver arrested and court to follow."

Gardaí on Twitter included a photo of the test results.

While cannabis and cocaine might be familiar to most readers, benzodiazepines are a type of medication that are usually known as tranquillisers.

Opiates refer to modified forms of opium.
