Prescription Drugs and DUI

You may have been stopped for suspicion of DUI and law enforcement believed you were under the influence of drugs. Even if you were legally prescribed a medication, you are not exempt from being charged, particularly if it is alleged that you were responsible for causing a collision with injuries or loss of life. The testing in these cases is usually blood or urine testing. DUI cases involving alcohol are tested with a breath testing unit, but cases of drug intoxication are tested by identifying drugs in your system through blood or urine testing. It is illegal to be in physical control of a vehicle if you are under the influence of any controlled substance, legally prescribed or not, that affects your ability to drive safely. The types of drugs that are most often associated with this charge are painkillers such as Vicodin, OxyContin, Percocet, Codeine, or similar medications.

Recreational Drugs and DUI

If law enforcement stops you and believes you have been smoking marijuana, or that you are under the influence of a controlled substance such as cocaine, meth, or other illegal drug, you can face charges of DUI, and if drugs are found in your vehicle, added charges for possession or worse. A fun trip to Vegas can become a legal nightmare. Whether you are a local or were visiting the city, our legal team can help you fight the charges. The science involved in drug testing is open to challenge, and your case could have various flaws that could be exploited by our defense team, allowing you to walk away without consequences, either with a dismissed charge or an acquittal.
