CLAIMS OF ALCOHOL USERS ABOUT THEIR DRUG INTAKE AND ITS PROOF

ANGABEN VON ALKOHOLTATERN UBER IHR ARZNEIMITTELEINNAHMEN UND DEREN UBERPRUFUNG

In the reported time between the first of May 1964 and the 31 of December 1974 there were 28,552 blood samples taken by police order. Among these 4,943 (=17.3%) persons claimed to have taken drugs before. Most of the drugs were soft anodynes as claimed by the accused persons. Analgetics, opiates, sedatives and hypnotic drugs obviously influence the frequency of accidents happening when people show a blood-alcohol-concentration between 0.8 and 1.3%. The interaction between alcohol and drugs and their influence on the psychophysical efficiency should be paid regard to by means of direct and sure proof. The confirmation of claimed drug-use diminishes with increasing blood-alcohol-concentration of the accused persons. By support of a great number of examination reports this can be stated for the first time.
