Drug driver brought to court.

A 21-YEAR-OLD was brought before a court to answer a drug driving charge.

New laws that came into force in March allowed police to arrest Ifan Joseph Smith when drug testing equipment found he was under the influence of cannabis.

Smith, of Ffordd Caerfyrddin in Wrexham was driving his Audi when he was pulled over by officers during routine road tests on the A5104 in Bryneglwys near Corwen in April. He was found to have 6.3mg of the Class C drug in his system with the benchmark for being over the limit set at 2mg.

At Prestatyn Magistrates Court, Smith was disqualified from driving for 12 months and ordered to pay a PS300 fine, PS150 criminal court charge, PS30 surcharge and PS85 costs.

Chair of the bench, Richard Welch said: "Your cannabis habit has got you into a hell of a lot of trouble hasn't it?"
