DUI cases involving drugs are somewhat rare in Pennsylvania due to the way police usually prosecute these cases. In most cases, the reason a police officer even administers Field Sobriety Tests in the first place is because they smelled alcohol on the breath of the driver after pulling them over. If a driver has been using drugs AND drinking alcohol, usually the officer will only test the blood for Alcohol because that is what he smelled, and because it costs extra money and is a separate test for drugs, and he might not have any reasonable suspicions that the driver is also using drugs. So, most times, when a driver is using both drugs and alcohol, they only discover a BAC for alcohol because that is all the police will have tested for. However, in some cases it is obvious to test for drugs, like if the driver was smoking Marijuana in the car immediately before being pulled over, and the car reeks of it.
