Driving Under The Influence Of Marijuana: A ‘Per Se’ Marijuana DUI

The state of Pennsylvania has some of the toughest laws in the country when it comes to driving while high. The state has adopted a “per se” evidence of marijuana law when it comes to driving. Drivers with a detectable level of 1 nanogram per milliliter could be guilty and face charges of DUID. With such a bare minimum as a threshold, practically any detectable levels of THC in your system will result in a marijuana DUI charge, even if there is no evidence of driving impairment. This is especially alarming because trace evidence of marijuana can remain in your bloodstream for up to a month. Those with medical marijuana cards can face unfair DUID accusations.

Refusing Law Enforcements Requests For Chemical Testing

In the state of Pennsylvania, law enforcement can request a blood or urine chemical test to determine the content of controlled substances in your system. If you refuse, your driver’s license will automatically be suspended for at least a year, or maybe even as long as 18 months. An experienced criminal defense lawyer who regularly handles DUI cases and drug possession cases can help you fight any DUID and marijuana DUI charges that you might be facing.
