Gillette Drugged Driving Defense Attorneys
In Wyoming, driving under the influence of an illegal drug can be just as serious an office as driving while intoxicated. But, while driving with a low blood alcohol level (0.08%) is allowed by law, illegal and prescription drugs do not have such clear limits. This means that defending an arrest for driving while under the influence of a drug can be quite different from the same situation involving alcohol.
Trying to deal with a drugged driving charge on your own is a serious mistake that can have major consequences, including heavy fines and even jail time. A knowledgeable Gillette defense attorney not only represents you within the legal system, but can also explain options that you might not, otherwise, realize you have. If you or a loved one has been arrested for driving under the influence of illicit or prescription drugs, call Steven Titus & Associates, P.C. at (307) 257-7800.
No, at this time, marijuana is not legal for medical or recreational use in Wyoming. While many states across the country have been passing laws to legalize marijuana in some way, Wyoming is not one of them.
You may drive while taking legal drugs that you have a prescription for, as long as they don’t impair your ability to drive safely. But, you should always be aware of a drug’s possible side effects, such as drowsiness, slowed reaction times, blurry vision, etc., especially when beginning a new medication. You can still be charged with drugged driving when taking of a prescribed drug, if that drug causes you to drive in an unsafe manner.
If you, or someone you know, has been charged with driving under the influence of illegal or prescription drugs in Campbell County, the first thing you should do is call an experienced Gillette impaired driving defense attorney. While you should honestly answer questions regarding your name, address, and similar information, do not answer any questions about drug use without your attorney present. Even a simple comment can be used against you later, making your defense more difficult.
