Driving Under Twenty One After Consuming Alcohol or Marijuana

DUI testIn many respects, a driving under twenty one after consuming alcohol charge is similar to a DUI. Most individuals have heard that it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content above .08. However, most minors don’t realize that if they are under 21, the legal limit is .02. That is an extremely low amount. No amount of marijuana in your system is legal if you are under 21.

This charge is a misdemeanor, which means the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. This is lower than a DUI which has a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine.

Just like with an MIP charge, this is often the first time an individual has ever been in trouble. The problem with this charge is the driving component. Many prosecutors will be especially concerned with the minor’s conduct because they possibly endangered the lives of other people on the roadway, including maybe even passengers.
