Can you get a DUI with Medical Marijuana Card in Arizona?

In this short video, David Cantor explains how you can get a DUI with a Medical Marijuana Card:

Currently, the State of Arizona is reviewing how they deal with marijuana or drug DUI arrests. To answer the question: Can I get a DUI in Arizona if I have a Medical Marijuana Card?

Yes. The reason you can is because of active metabolites. If you smoked marijuana within 12 – 24 hours, your blood reading could show active metabolites meaning you were under the psychoactive effect of THC or marijuana. The State could then prove that you were driving a car while impaired.

If your blood only shows inactive metabolites and you are a registered Medical Marijuana user in the State of Arizona, then it is possible to avoid DUI charges because the State cannot prove you were impaired at the time of arrest and only knows that you had smoked previously as there were no active metabolites in your blood.

If you need help with either scenario described above, it is important that you have proper legal representation. Our firm offers free consultations for drug and DUI cases. If you would like to set-up a meeting with a lawyer, call us at (602) 461-8625 or email us using our secure confidential form.
