DUI with Marijuana

Phoenix Marijuana DUI Defense Attorney

Arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Drugs?

Even if you are not truly "impaired," it is possible to be convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) of marijuana in Arizona. If THC is found in your blood, you could be sentenced to jail for up to six months for a misdemeanor DUI offense, have to pay significant fines and fees, and lose your driver's license for up to one year. It hardly sounds fair, but this is the law.

We are experienced and knowledgeable, and we are determined to obtain the best possible outcome for every client.

How to Fight Your Marijuana DUI Charges

Our attorneys are former prosecutors who now defend people charged with drug and alcohol-related DUI. We understand the many possible defenses in these cases, and how to challenge the state's assertions. As in regular DUI cases, there are a number of defense strategies that could result in a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a non-DUI driving offense.

There are several possible defenses against marijuana DUI charges, which may include:

  • Lack of probable cause for law enforcement to stop your vehicle
  • Lack of probable cause for law enforcement to continue the investigation
  • Lack of admissible blood or urine tests / no clear chain of custody
  • Failure of law enforcement to follow proper procedure when arresting you
  • Failure of law enforcement to advise you of your Miranda rights

If a viable defense strategy exists in your case, we will find it. The Phoenix criminal defense lawyers at Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. have extensive experience in drug crime cases, including those that involve driving under the influence. If you have been charged with DUI, or a related crime like marijuana possession, you can turn to us for an aggressive defense.

The Penalties for a Drug-Related DUI Conviction

If you are caught driving under the influence of drugs, you will be charged with a class 1 misdemeanor—which is also the case for an alcohol-related DUI offense. This crime is punishable by a mandatory jail term of 10 consecutive days.

You could also face the following penalties for a drug-related DUI offense:

  • Up to six months in jail (minimum 10-day term)
  • Over $2,000 in various fines and court fees
  • A 90-day driver’s license suspension
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Alcohol or drug education / treatment program
