Cocaine Question

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and really hope someone can give me some advice. My dad was killed in a car accident and the drug test results have come back on the other driver. I was told he had cocaine in his blood, so I obtained a copy of the drug test. I don't know anything about cocaine so hopefully someone can help me out. This is what is says on the results:
benzoylecgonine 770 ng/mL Metabolite of cocaine

If anyone can tell me how much cocaine this is or offer any advice, please do!

(((Cndleflme))) I'm so sorry about your dad.

I found this at http://www.healthy.net/clinic/lab/labtest/005.asp

Cutoff and Detection Post Dose
The initial screening cutoff level is 300 ng/ml for cocaine and its metabolite benzoylecgonine. Use of cocaine for euphoria may result in positive urines above this level for 48-72 hours post dose. Longer times will be observed in the habituated person using large quantities. The GC/MS cutoff level is 150 ng/ml.

Hope it's helpful.

Thanks for the info and the support. I need to know as much as I can about this because they are letting this driver walk, they aren't charging him with anything. If there is anyone that has further insight, please respond. I still don't have a clue as to how much cocaine this is and how it would impair a person.

Thanks so much,
