Drivers aren't high but still busted for DUI: Column

Drivers aren't high but still busted for DUI: Column | Oklahoma DUI Lawyer | Scoop.it
Arizona drivers are going to jail, paying big fines and losing their licenses even after blood tests prove they were not high.
Oklahoma DUI Lawyer's insight:
In at least 10 states in the US, drivers are being charged with DUI who were not under the influence. Drivers with any trace of marijuana in their blood at the time of their arrest can be charged with DUI, even if they were not high at the time. Defense attorneys and blood tests have proved that these people were not high at the time of their arrest, but they are still being convicted. In Arizona, defense attorneys are attempting to take their DUI defense cases for these types of charges to the Supreme Court to try to change the law.
