Driving Under The Influence Of Drugs
Not all DUI charges arise from alcohol use. In Virginia, it is also illegal to drive under the influence of drugs. This includes illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine, as well as prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Percocet and Valium.

Many people are surprised to learn they can be charged with DUI without drinking a drop of alcohol or taking an illegal drug. If you drive while impaired by a drug you have a prescription for, you can be charged with DUI.
Marijuana And Driving
The problem with many DUI marijuana arrests is the reliability of blood testing. Trace amounts of marijuana can remain in the bloodstream for weeks, even months, long after the effects of the drug have disappeared. If you have been charged with driving under the influence of marijuana, it is important to consult a defense lawyer who understands the rules and procedures for blood testing and knows how to challenge police evidence.
