Legal Defenses Against “Marijuana DUIs”

There is a fundamental problems with the prosecution of these type of DUIs. There is a huge problem with prosecuting marijuana DUIS. THC can remain in your system for a long period of time after it is no longer psychoactive or having any effect on your system. A chronic user of marijuana may have a positive test days or even weeks after their use. Unlike alcohol, it is extremely difficult to take the results of a positive THC and then extrapolate back in time as to the amount and recency of use. The science just isn’t there yet to prove these cases.

If you are faced with prosecution under this statute, it is critical to seek an expert with the proper experience to assist you in your defense.
