Marijuana DUI in California

Marijuana has been legal in California since January 1st 2018, however, it is still illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of marijuana. Being found guilty of this comes with much of the same prison time, fines, rehabilitation requirements, and license suspension that is associated with alcohol related DUIs. These penalties can also come with other, more severe, charges if anyone was hurt or killed when intoxicated behind the wheel.

However, unlike alcohol it is difficult to prove the amount of marijuana in an individual’s system, or if their abilities were even impaired because unlike alcohol there is no legal limit to marijuana. This is especially true since marijuana is difficult to nail down when it comes to the strength of a specific strain.

So in many cases a prosecutor will try to convict an individual with the presences of drug paraphernalia in the suspect’s possession, how they did on their field sobriety test, and any physical symptoms that the suspect experienced at the time of arrests (like dry mouth, dilated pupils, or the odor of marijuana on the individual).
