IF YOU HAVE BEEN ARRESTED FOR DUI, YOU ONLY HAVE 10 DAYS TO SAVE YOUR LICENSE.
Drug related Drinking Under The Influence cases may involve prescription medicine, which can impair a driver's ability to operate a vehicle. Cases can also involve illegal drugs, such as heroin, cocaine and marijuana. As of now, prosecutors do not need to prove that an illegal drug or substance caused a driver to be impaired, except if the case involved prescription marijuana or medications. The only thing a prosecutor needs to prove is that your system contained illegal drugs, and if illegal substances were found in your car, then you could be looking at a drug possession charge. This is even the case if the person was not driving, and you can expect your license to be suspended upon pleaing to possession of the drugs.
