You may think that your marijuana DUI charge will be easy to overcome, especially if you did marijuana legally in another state and were not impaired when you were pulled over. Think again.
Marijuana use is still illegal in Utah. In fact, you can be charged with DUI and drug possession even if your arresting officer did not detect impairment. That is why it is important to work with experienced marijuana DUI defense lawyer Greg S. Law. Call 801-261-6228 or send us an e-mailfor a free and confidential consultation.
Attorney Greg S. Law focuses a large portion of his practice on defending clients facing DUI charges throughout Utah, including clients from other states. His background as a former police officer, member of the DUI squad and DRE (drug recognition expert) instructor give him a unique perspective when defending against DUI charges. He knows which defenses are most effective and how to use them to get you the best result possible in your case.
When You Are Innocent
Let’s say you go to Colorado, get high (legally), spend the night and then drive home when you no longer feel the effects of marijuana in your system. On the way home to Utah, you get pulled over for speeding. The officer asks you to take a blood or urine test. You take it, knowing that you are sober. But the test comes back positive for THC in your blood, and you are charged with driving under the influence of drugs.
How can you be charged with DUI for marijuana when you are not impaired and you took the drugs legally? Marijuana’s active ingredient, THC, can stay in the blood stream for days, long after the impairing effects have worn off.
How We Will Defend Against Your DUI Drug / Marijuana Charges
Whether you are innocent or guilty of your charges, there may be defenses available to you. From our extensive experience defending clients against DUI charges, we know that certain issues often arise in DUI drug cases, and will determine:
Whether your traffic stop was legal: Did the officer have a basis for the stop? Was it reasonable? Did the officer act appropriately during the traffic stop?
Whether you used marijuana recently: When and where did you last use marijuana? Was it in Utah? Is it reasonable to assume the tests show actual impairment?
Whether the officers observed impairment: Is there evidence of your impairment beyond the tests? Are the tests given even relevant to drug use?
