Marijuana DUI in Tacoma

With 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!

cannabisThe 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.

Client Reviews
Great service and follow up. Its a scary thing when you need a lawyer but Jason and his team make it less so. Very happy with our outcome. Scott Thibeault
"I can't say enough great things about Jason Newcombe Law Office. I am retired military and I highly recommend Jason Newcombe Law Office. I reached out to Jason's office after sitting for hours reviewing multiple Domestic Violence Law Offices in King County. He responded before that day was over. I spoke with Jason's both in-person and by phone; felt very comfortable with his years of experience and straight talk. He took on my case, took me through the process with sound advice. The Attorney Erin Lane who accompanied me with my court appearances; can't praise and thank her enough for her time, selflessness and educational information prior to each court appearance. She made a really daunting task for me less fearful, given such grim circumstances. I am forever grateful for Jason and the Team of Attorneys." Tommy Harville
