The cops want me to take a drug test - What will happen?

DUI Breath Alcohol Concentration BAC Refusal

Refusal to take a drug test can be used in court and by the Florida driver's license authorities to suspend a license under the refusal to submit to chemical testing portions of the Florida Statutes. Police usually request a drug test in the form of a urine sample when drivers blow under a .08 . Cops suspect that the alleged bad driving and the "poor" performance on the Field Sobriety Tests must have been due to drug use. The mere indication of a controlled substance in such samples cannot be used by itself to establish impairment. Some courts allow DUI prosecutors to tell the jury that a drug test result indicating drug use, coupled with a low breath sample (under .08) shows the driver's "normal faculties were impaired".
