DUI for Marijuana

A DUI marijuana arrest is one of the more common DUI arrests we see in the Orlando area that involves illegal drugs. Because the arrests are common does not mean that just any Orlando DUI attorney can properly defend your case. If you or your loved one has been arrested for DUI marijuana, contact TK Law today to arrange for a free consultation with an experienced attorney who will know the best defense for the case.

A Florida officer may arrest a person for DUI marijuana after a breath, blood, or urine test determines that the person’s blood alcohol content (BAC) is at or above the legal limit of .08.

A driver arrested for DUI has just 10 days to challenge the suspension of a driver’s license. TK Law can get to work right away in preserving our client’s rights and nullifying the suspension of a license. TK Law can also help with attaining a 42-day driving permit so that our clients can continue to drive to work while their case continues through court.

DUI Marijuana Penalties

Driving under the influence of any drug that could lead to impairment behind the wheel of a vehicle is just as much considered DUI as driving under the influence of alcohol. While a DUI is a serious offense in the state of Florida, multiple factors can affect whether the evidence against an alleged DUI driver will even be admissible in a court proceeding.

Any drug-related conviction in Florida leads to an automatic two-year suspension of a driver’s license. In addition to the suspension, a conviction of DUI for marijuana may result in the following penalties:

  • A fine between $500 and $1,000
  • Up to six months in jail
  • 50 hours community service
  • Up to one year probation
  • Minimum 180 days driver’s license revocation
  • 12 hours DUI School
  • Vehicle impounded 10 days

The penalties for DUI marijuana increase for every subsequent DUI-related offense. The stakes are even higher if an accident or death is involved.

DUI Marijuana Defense

It is important to remember that a DUI arrest is just that. No matter what an officer or prosecutor may imply, a driver has not been convicted of any crime until he or she has had an opportunity for a defense and/or a fair trial.

At TK Law, we have identified that some of the best defenses in DUI marijuana relate to boldly challenging the scientific evidence of the chemical tests used in the driver’s arrest. There are many times that the proper procedures were not followed or that the proper authorities, generally a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE), were not present in administering these tests.

There are also several factors that could contribute to errors in the tests’ readings, including the obvious fact that marijuana can remain stored in a person’s body for several days after the effects have worn off. The prosecution has the hard task of proving that a suspected DUI driver was under the influence of marijuana at the time that he or she was charged.

A TK Law attorney will pull any necessary records and take time with our clients to piece together exactly what happened at the time of a DUI arrest. We can be reached today and can conveniently schedule a free consultation for a time that is good for you.

What to do after DUI Marijuana Arrest

If you are arrested for DUI, the first thing you need to do is call your TK Law attorney as soon as possible.

Be careful not to say anything to law enforcement aside from your identifying information. You want to be respectful, but you want to inform the officer that your attorney will handle any discussions with law enforcement.

Some attorneys will advise you to refuse a chemical test every time, while others will tell you to comply with the Florida implied consent law that says all valid Florida drivers have technically already agreed to take the test if they are suspected of DUI.

The experienced DUI attorneys at TK Law do not clump our clients into one or two scenarios. We need to talk to you in order to guide you in the right legal direction.
