Marijuana DUI in Tacoma

cannabisWith having a limited quantity of marijuana now being legal under State law, the DUI law also was slightly altered. The same statute applies with this type of DUI so the consequences you face will also be virtually the same. You will still face a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine in most instances, along with probation, court ordered classes, license suspension, and even the ignition interlock!

The big difference between an alcohol related DUI and a marijuana DUI is the analysis of your blood. While alcohol can be measured by way of a breath test, marijuana is only currently measured by way of a blood draw. Also, most individuals should know the per se legal limit for alcohol is .08. Instead, per se legal limit for marijuana in your system is 5 ng per mL. This level can be especially difficult for a user to determine in advance. While there are general rules of thumb about the speed of alcohol dissipating in an individual’s body as well as most alcohol having label indicating alcohol percentages, marijuana doesn’t have that luxury. The level of THC in your system can also vary depending on the method of consumption.

Whether you are facing an alcohol related DUI or a drug related DUI, feel free to give our office a call. We will be more than happy to discuss your case and answer your questions.

I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
