It is unlawful to drive while under the influence of marijuana (or alcohol or any other drug). "Under the influence" is not specifically defined in the state statute, but is interpreted to imply some degree of impairment. For evidence of impairment, officers may administer a field sobriety test. Arrestees may also be required to submit to their choice of a urine or blood test.

Any individual under 21 who is convicted of a marijuana, alcohol or other drug offense faces a 12-month driver's license suspension, regardless of whether the offense was driving-related. This penalty can be avoided by entering a diversion program. In fact, we are often able to obtain reduced or dismissed charges, keep our clients out of jail and have illegally seized money returned to its rightful owners.

Additionally, some marijuana-related felony convictions may be subject to expungement so that you can ultimately clear your record.
