Drinking alcohol and driving is not the only way to put yourself at risk of getting a DUI. According to Arizona DUI Laws, you can also be charged with DUI if you are driving under the influence of certain drugs. In fact, Arizona law doesn’t specify a certain blood level or impairment level to charge somebody. If you have drugs or drug metabolites in your system, you can be charged with DUI.
First-Time Drug-Related DUI can result in punishment up to or including:
- One or more days in jail
- Fines and fees of $2000 or more
- Revocation of Drivers License
- Required use of an Interlock driving device
- Mandatory counseling or rehabilitation programs
If you have been convicted of drug related DUI, it is important to consult a Criminal Defense Attorney immediately.
