Out of 6.6 million pee medication tests gathered from U.S. working grown-ups in 2014, 4.7 percent tried positive for illicit medications, for example, cannabis, cocaine and amphetamines. In 2013, that figure was 4.3 percent, which had spoken to the first ascent since 2003. 


Weed was discovered to be the most broadly utilized illicit medication at 2.4 percent, up from 2.1 percent in 2013. The pee tests likewise demonstrated an increment in cocaine use, from 0.22 percent in 2013 to 0.24 in 2014. Nonetheless, "over all example sorts," the amphetamine increment is the "largest amount on record" that the lab has seen. 


Specialists noticed that before, they have seen high measures of positive results for physician recommended medications, however in light of the outcomes, it appears to be illegal medications are getting up to speed.
