No, the ignition interlock device can only detect the presence of alcohol. However, if caught driving under the influence of any drug while using an interlock device means you are committing a second offense and it can be charged separately if you fail a sobriety test after getting pulled over. If the officer has reasonable cause for suspicion to assume you are intoxicated, you could end up having a second offense.
