San Diego Marijuana DUIs will now be prosecuted even more with the new law making marijuana legal. This means marijuana is going to be legal for those 21 and over.
However, like alcohol, having too much while behind the wheel can find you in some trouble.
The issue is going to be how much is too much. With alcohol, we know that .08% or greater will get you in trouble. But how much is too much for marijuana? That limit is likely to be made soon. In the meantime, it is going to be a combination of active marijuana in the system, coupled with impaired symptoms and bad driving.

People arrested for driving with marijuana in their system often pose no danger to the public, unlike drivers with alcohol and other drugs. Indeed, studies have shown that drivers that have ingested pot responsibly can drive safely, in some cases better than those who have not. As the science gets established, there seems to be an agenda to push forward with prosecutions. If you are arrested for a marijuana DUI, contact the Law Offices of Mark Deniz at (858) 751-4384.
Knowing your rights when stopped by police is key. Most people are scared when stopped by police, even when they did nothing wrong. You do not want your desire to be cooperative and show you are a good person result in you throwing away your rights. I see it happen all the time.
A large part of criminal defense is examining the officer's investigation. If you are already charged and are in court, please speak to your attorney about the officer's examination. If you are currently or potentially facing criminal charges, call the Law Offices of Mark Deniz for a consultation at (858) 751-4384.
