Lab releases Allen County top 3 drugs of choice

DAVE GONG | The Journal Gazette

Marijuana, cocaine and amphetamines are the top three drugs of choice in Allen County, according to data from Forensic Fluids Laboratories.

Testing in Indiana's 92 counties found that marijuana is the top drug used statewide. The same is true for Michigan and Ohio, according to a news release from the company late Monday afternoon. Other drugs found include opiates, cocaine and methadone. 

In Allen County, 18.6 percent of those tested by the company were positive for THC, the psychoactive component to marijuana. About 7 percent tested positive for cocaine and about 5.6 percent tested positive for amphetamines. 

Forensic Fluids Laboratories performs oral fluid drug tests. The company's website says it provides drug testing that is "simple, fast and radically informative," with positive or negative results returned within eight to 24 hours.
