Not only can it be illegal to operate a vehicle after drinking alcohol, but it can also be equally illegal to operate a vehicle after taking certain drugs. Similar to alcohol, certain drugs can affect a person’s ability to make decisions, judgment, motor skills/abilities, and hand-eye coordination. This does not only refer to controlled substances like marijuana, cocaine, or heroin, but also to legal prescription medications as well. Even some over-the-counter medications can cause drowsiness behind the wheel!

Prosecutors often have a difficult time proving these cases. This is partly because there is no “legal limit” with regard to drugs. Testing methods for drugs are different than those used for alcohol. For example, a Breathalyzer can measure the level of alcohol in a person’s system. Blood tests can do the same. For drugs, however, there is no “limit” of drugs for which a presumption of intoxication exists. In addition, some drugs can remain in the system (and show up on drug tests) for days and even weeks after being consumed, regardless of whether the person shows symptoms of intoxication.

Offenses of DUI with drugs are punished just as severely as driving under the influence of alcohol in Brevard County, FL. That’s why it’s vital to retain an aggressive and experienced Brevard County DUI Defense attorney at the earliest possible stage of your case.
