DUI Drug Defense Strategies
In some respects, a DUI drug case is more difficult for the state to prove than a regular DUI. The prosecutor must show that your driving was impaired and that your impairment was the result of your drug intake. However, the mere presence of a drug in your bloodstream does not necessarily mean that you were impaired. The remnants of drugs (metabolites) can remain in your blood long after the effects of the drug have worn off.
Furthermore, very few police officers in the region are certified drug recognition experts. Police officers who are not certified frequently attempt to employ the same techniques to evaluate drivers for drug impairment as they do for alcohol impairment. The signs of alcohol impairment are much different than those for drug impairment.
There may be other possible defenses such as a lack of probable cause for the police to stop you, a lack of probable cause to continue the investigation, or a failure to advise you of your rights. Our DUI drug lawyers in Gwinnett County will take advantage of any mistakes made by police officers in this regard.
