Police can now test for the presence of Marijuana, Speed, Ice and Ecstasy. This is done via a saliva swap. There is an initial swab by the roadside and then a more comprehensive swab. If you return a positive result you will be disqualified for a period of up to 9 months for a first offence, with fines up to $1200. If you have a history of Drink or Drug driving, then the penalties can be significantly higher.
