Marijuana DUI in Bellevue
A marijuana related DUI is very similar to an alcohol related DUI – so much so that they fall under the same statute. Just like a DUI, you will be facing jail time, fines, court fees, a license suspension, court ordered classes, and even an ignition interlock requirement! If you are being accused of driving under the influence of marijuana, give our Bellevue office a call. We will be more than happy to answer your questions. While an alcohol related DUI has a per se legal limit of .08, the marijuana THC limit in your system is 5 ng/ml. The general consensus is that this limit is quite low so you may actually be over that limit without even knowing it. It can also be more difficult to project the amounts in your system compared to alcohol. The different methods of consumption and lack of clearly labeled THC levels can result in different THC levels in your system. Just like with an alcohol related DUI, there are other factors which can impact the penalties you face, such as:
- Prior DUI charges
- Whether you refused a blood draw
- Whether there were injuries involved
- Whether you have a CDL
- Whether there are passengers under 16
