If you have been arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana you must hire an experienced DUI defense attorney to defend you in court. A DUI of marijuana conviction will result in the same penalties you would face if convicted of an alcohol DWI charge, namely fines, suspension of your driver’s license, a mandatory alcohol/drug evaluation, an ignition interlock device (even though it detects alcohol, not drugs) and of course, mandatory jail!

Drivers who operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of marijuana are violating Washington State law in the very same way that people who violate the law by drinking and driving. In Washington driving under the influence of a drug is a violation of the law in the very same way that driving under the influence of alcohol is. The penalties are also the same, meaning mandatory jail, a license suspension, severe fines, and an increase in insurance premiums. Because the use of marijuana may affect a person’s reaction time, their level of alertness, and ultimately their ability to physically control a vehicle, the law deems it is a crime to drive while under influence of marijuana. Law enforcement, judges, and prosecutors take DUI of marijuana cases very seriously, and will not hesitate to prosecute an offender to the fullest extent of the law. In Washington State marijuana DUIs are treated more seriously than anywhere else in the Country, so it is imperative to consult with an attorney who understands who to defend this area of law in court.

As of December 6, 2012, the state of Washington enacted a specific Marijuana DUI statute which made driving after having a set limit of THC in the blood stream illegal. The law also established an administrative licensing requirement in order for the driver to keep their license. The law has changed to make law enforcement and courts treat marijuana DUIs the same way they driving under the influence of alcohol. In Washington it is now unlawful for drivers to operate a motor vehicle with .05 nanograms or greater of THC in the blood stream as determined by an authorized blood draw and analysis. Those who are convicted under this statute will face the same DUI penalties as one convicted under the alcohol DUI statute. One major difference is that a blood test showing a level of THC greater than or equal to .05 will now require the Washington DOL to take an administrative action against the driver's license as it would for .08 or higher alcohol cases. If the action was upheld, it would mean a license suspension of 90 days to two years depending on the driver's history. This law is new and unique and consequently not every attorney is qualified to defend those charged with this crime. The criminal defense attorneys at the Law Firm of David N. Jolly are highly qualified and experienced in defending marijuana DUI cases. Call them now for more information.
