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! Each jurisdiction in Snohomish County deals with these cases differently so it is imperative your attorney understand the Snohomish County prosecutor's office, the Everett prosecutor's office, the Lynnwood prosecutor's office, the Marysville prosecutor's office and all of the cities in the County.
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 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.

If you are driving in Snohomish County, whether it be in the City of Everett, the City of Lynnwood or even in the City of Marysville, and are operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of marijuana you are in danger of being arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana. In Washington State the law for drugged driving is treated the same as the law for drinking and driving. The penalties are also the same, meaning you will be facing mandatory jail in one of three Snohomish County jails, namely Snohomish County Jail, Lynnwood Municipal Jail or Marysville Jail. Additionally, you will face a license suspension, severe fines, increase in insurance premiums and even an ignition interlock device even though the device measures alcohol in your system and marijuana ingestion has nothing to do with alcohol.

In Snohomish County marijuana DUIs are treated more seriously than anywhere else in the Country, so it is critical you consult with an attorney who understands who to defend this area of law in Snohomish County courts.
