Officers tweeted from the Halesworth Police account to say they had given out the warnings after a car in Aldeburgh smelled of cannabis.
In the tweet they said: “Be mindful, drug driving can lead to the same conviction outcomes as drink driving.”
A police spokesman said: “Officers stopped the vehicle in Slaughden Road, Aldeburgh, after cannabis was smelled coming from inside it.
