Marijuana DUI Cases are Expected to Increase in North County

Marijuana DUI cases are expected to increase in North County based on the legalization of recreational Marijuana for sale as of January 2018.  Law enforcement in Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista and throughout north county is gearing up for the challenge of prosecuting the projected increase in Drug DUI cases as a result of this.  More officers are being trained as Drug Recognition Experts (DRE) to recognize impairment in drivers other than or in addition to alcohol.

Marijuana DUI Cases in Vista Courts

Marijuana DUI cases in Vista Courts are on the rise as they are statewide.  With the passage of California laws legalizing recreational and medical marijuana, it will become an increasing issue on our highways.  Just because it is now legal, doesn't mean that it is legal to drive with it in your system if it impairs your ability to drive with the same care and caution as a sober person under similar circumstances.   The same goes for any drug, prescription or not, with or without alcohol involved.

Are Marijuana DUI Cases in Vista Courts changed by Prop 64?

Prosecution of marijuana DUI cases in Vista Courts have not changed with the passage of Prop 64 legalizing the recreational use of marijuana.  The new law affects the possession, cultivation and sale of marijuana.  Just like prescription drugs are not illegal with a prescription, you can still be prosecuted if you drive a vehicle while your ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired regardless of the legality of the substance or alcohol used.  The law is intended to safeguard the public by keeping impaired drivers off the road.
