What will his punishment be? (The Emperor pays a visit to one of The Emperors Chambermaids)

#1
In August 2018 a newly qualified tank driver at 21 gets roadside tested on leave and found to have ten times the legal limit of cocaine metabolite benzoylecgonine in his system. In February 2019 the court fines him £300 and hands out a 12 month ban. Meanwhile the grown-ups in Whitehall decided back in November 2018 to (re)introduce the 'zero tolerance' policy towards drug use by service personnel and stop re-admitting offenders if they'd cleaned up.

My question is will the Army really chuck him out and write off the huge investment made in him or will the punishment be less severe, allowing him ultimately to soldier on, despite the possibility of him being at the controls of a 62.5 ton Challenger tank when impaired through drugs?

My interest is one of idle curiosity. I am not him or his friend. If I was I'd tell him to lock down his FB page, less some bad (instead of just nosy) people take advantage of the info that is publicly viewable there.

What's the legal limit for cocaine? Asking for a friend.

Who knew there was a legal limit (above zero) for driving under the influence of cocaine?

The legal limit is 10 micrograms per litre of blood but It is still illegal to drive if your driving is affected (impaired) after using drugs, even if you are below the set limit.

Every day a school day. Probably shouldn't drive your kids to school whilst off your tits on cocaine though.

It's the difference between s4 Road Traffic Act 1998 (being unfit) versus s5 Road Traffic Act 1988 (Alcohol above specified limit) or 5a Road Traffic Act 1998 (Driving or being in charge of a motor vehicle with concentration of specified controlled drug above specified limit)

Thing is, it always used to require a statement from a Forensic Medical Examiner that someone was unfit, so it was rarely charged. Easier to charge with what was blown on the roadside screening device and then the station's lion intoximeter. Likewise for screening devices for controlled drugs.

I had high hopes for this thread from the title, sounds like the cracking title for a porn film. All we needed was a step-mom to make the full bingo card.

Been done.

Germans had "interesting" views on that and when things were getting a bit spotty around 1944 decided to step things up with D-IX: 5mg Cocaine, 3mg Pervitin (Methamphetamine) and 5mg (Oxycodone)

Thus equipped, possible to march 90km per day carrying 20kg without rest even if you were not in the best of health to start with being a test subject from a concentration camp.

Never did get fully rolled out and that was just as well for all concerned, although was handed out to mini submarine crew. Helps being completely off your tits en route to certain death

Personally, I hope they kick him out.

He’s a liability to both himself and others - civilian and military.

Not sure why you care enough to ask though, if you don’t know him.

Times have changed. Someone just found using cannabis would get the crap kicked out of him.

Boot him out and forget about him would be my call. Write off the cost of his training and past wages as a bad job.

If the mong has publicly plastered it on faceplate he deserves to be tarred, feathered and discharged.

I am suprised your tastes are so pedestrian.

Until he fessed up to where his stash was?

On an aside, I was chuckling at someone saying the worst thing to be for a porn star right now was late 20's to 30s. Too old for teen, too young for MILF/Step-Mom roles.

Such a savage industry.

As to my viewing habbits, I was thinking of getting a "actions on" patch...

I share your pain Brother B.

I was expecting a full on spankfest with rosy cheeked nubile lovelies and stern leather clad MILFs.

Back in ten minutes.

The Emperor refers to the Emperor Mong and The Emperors Chambermaids is a nickname for the regiment that the protagonist of this sorry tale MAY be a member of.

Do you really want a Cokehead driving a sixty tonne vehicle? Who cares about the cost when he could do a lot of expensive damage and cause serious injury if left unchecked?

Class A drugs cannot be compatible with service life.
