Between 2011 and 2012, an estimated 8.9% of adults used an illegal drug. For young people aged between 16 and 24, the figure was 19.3%. In the UK, cannabis is the most commonly used recreational drug. Cocaine is the second most used. Drug misuse has a negative effect on the health, well-being and quality of life of too many people. If employers drug test their employee’s this will help decrease the amount of working days lost per year from drug abuse.
