If you are being considered for driving with excess drugs (cannabis) then they will be testing your sample for a level. Cannabis is detected by analysing for the presence of its metabolite, namely THC. In the event that the reading is 2.1µg of THC per 100ml of blood or above then you will be charged with driving with excess drugs. That offence carries a minimum ban of 12 months upon conviction. You can be banned for anything up to 3 years for a first time offence.

You should have been given your own specimen to take away and have independently analysed. You have a right to do that in order to check the compatibility with the police result.
