Julian Buchanan's curator insight, April 14, 10:17 PM

It is interesting to see and note, it is generally the smaller countries, (not the major players in Anglophile led global western capitalism), who have been/are leading the way to alternative drug policies: Uruguay, Ecuador, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.

I suspect one of the many reasons is the vested interest of the the pharmaceutical industry and the power and influence of the legal drug industry (alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine) in Anglophile capitalist countries,

Randy Collins's insight:

Being tested with a BAC level of 0.01-0.04% while being under the drinking age in California is a civil penalty that is usually governed by the DMV where the offender will not have to appear in court but rather in a DMV hearing. Of course, one’s attorney can still appeal an underage DUI charge on behalf of his or her client despite the penalty being civil and not criminal.

Randy Collins's insight:

Many of those arrested for DUI in California go to their arraignment believing that it is their opportunity to plead their case and hopefully have it dismissed. This is not the purpose of a DUI arraignment. The arraignment is where you will find out what criminal charges have been filed against you, your Constitutional rights, as well as bail status. This is also where you are given your first opportunity to enter a plea: no contest, not guilty, or guilty.
