A man has appeared at Carlisle Magistrates Court after being caught driving whilst being 16 times over the drug driving limit.
28-year-old Craig Sinkinson was stopped by police whilst he was driving his Ford Fiesta. On speaking to him, the officers suspected he was under the influence of drugs and subjected him to a roadside drug test. The test proved positive for cocaine and cannabis.
The court heard how Sinkinson fully cooperated with the police and admitted that he had smoked cannabis merely 20 minutes before he was pulled over.
An analysis of his blood showed he had 800mcg of Benzoylecgonine in his system, with the legal limit being 50mcg.
He also had 4.6mcg of THC, with the legal limit being 2mcg.
Telling Magistrates that he felt okay at the time he was driving, Sinkinson was banned from driving for 23 months.
