DUI With Drugs in Gilbert
Call Our Gilbert DUI Attorney Today For Tough Defense
If you’ve been arrested for driving under the influence of drugs,
you need to take quick action to protect your future. In Arizona, the
prosecution doesn’t need to prove that drugs impaired your ability
to drive – they only need to prove that drugs were in your system
while you were driving.
At McPhie Law, our
Gilbert DUI lawyer is a highly experienced former prosecutor with more than 1000 cases under
his belt. Attorney Ryan McPhie has appeared in every court in the East
Valley, and has an intimate understanding of the rules, policies, and
procedures of each one.
Let us put our inside knowledge to work for you – call (480) 568-2778 today.
Have a Prescription? You Can Still Be Charged.
There are actually two statues in Arizona that deal with driving under
the influence of drugs:
- First, you may be arrested if a police officer believes you are impaired
from virtually any substance – this not only includes alcohol and
illegal drugs, but also prescription medication.
- However, you don’t actually need to be impaired to be charged with
a drugged-driving offense. Arizona state law also makes it illegal to
drive with virtually any drug metabolites in your system, unless you have
a valid prescription. Metabolites are essentially what’s left over
when your liver breaks down a substance – for some drugs like marijuana,
the metabolites can stay in your system for weeks after use.
