Question: Can I get a DUI in Van Nuys while on marijuana instead of alcohol?

Answer: Yes, it is possible under VC 23152(a). If suspected of a dui for marijuana, they will usually have you do a blood test to determine levels of marijuana in your system. There are defenses to this though, even if you tested positive for marijuana, as there is no set level of “impairment” for marijuana DUI, and the levels can stay in your system if you are a chronic smoker, even if you weren’t under the influence at the time of arrest. You should contact a DUI attorney in Van Nuys area. Feel free to call me at 818-336-1DUI to discuss your case in more detail. My office is down the street from Van Nuys Court.
