Can I Be Charged With A Marijuana DUI?

The legal status of recreational Marijuana is irrelevant to California Dui Law. Although the new laws make it legal to grow, own, and even smoke marijuana in California it is still illegal to smoke and get behind the wheel of a car.

Here are two reason why:

1. California Dui Laws state that driving under the influence of any substance that can affect a drivers nervous systems, muscles  or brain is illegal. Marijuana is known to clearly affect the brain.
2. It has been shown that Marijuana in some cases can impair driving ability which can put people’s safety at risk.

So the penalties for a Marijuana Dui in California can consist of jail time, loss of your drivers license, and raise your insurance rates. It is just as serious as getting a drunk driving from alcohol.
But with the right legal help you can fight these charges. It is often hard to prove just how much marijuana was in your system for the prosecution and it might not be able to prove you were under the influence or impaired at all. You can beat a Marijuana dui case with the help of a good lawyer.
