Metabolite DUI for Marijuana and Other Drugs in Salt Lake, Utah, Davis and Weber Counties
Utah law prohibits an individual from operating a vehicle with any "measurable amount" of controlled substance in your body, including marijuana. Generally speaking, it does not matter how or when you ingested the substance. However, where you ingested marijuana may give you a colorable defense. If you are driving with any measurable amount, even if you are no longer feeling the drug's effects, you can be charged with a DUI.
Defending against a DUI Charge
A charge of DUI does not mean that you will be convicted of DUI. Depending on the facts of your own case, an experienced defense attorney can argue for a reduced charge, such as Impaired or Reckless Driving.
