Data Supports Findings
Forensic Fluids Laboratories (FFL) has collected extensive data regarding drug prevalence in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana through testing with their state-of-the-art technology. Analysis of this data demonstrates the most frequently detected drugs in each area. The lab predominantly offers drug testing for Child Protective Services, county specialty courts, and employer pre-screenings. Through this testing, FFL’s team of toxicologists has gathered data concerning the most prevalent drugs in each state, along with data for each county that FFL has contracted services. The county data support the findings that in all three states, the top drugs in the serviced counties are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Amphetamine and Methamphetamine. Other drugs detected in the analyses include Opiates, Cocaine, and Methadone. THC is the physiologically active component found in cannabis, and Forensic Fluids Laboratories recognizes the recent legalization of recreational marijuana in December of 2018 in Michigan may be relevant to higher statistics of THC.
