Chandler Marijuana DUI Lawyers

Most people think of alcohol when the subject of DUI comes up, but you can also be charged with a DUI for driving under the influence of marijuana as well. In Arizona, you can be guilty of DUI if you are impaired to the slightest degree, and that not only applies to alcohol but marijuana and other drugs as well.

It is unlawful for a person to drive or be in actual physical control of a vehicle in this state under any of the following circumstances:

  1. While under the influence of intoxicating liquor, any drug, a vapor releasing substance containing a toxic substance or any combination of liquor, drugs, or vapor releasing substances if the person is impaired to the slightest degree.
  2. If the person has an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more within two hours of driving or being in actual physical control of the vehicle and the alcohol concentration results from alcohol consumed either before or while driving or being in actual physical control of the vehicle.
  3. While there is any drug defined in section 13-3401 or its metabolite in the person’s body.
  4. If the vehicle is a commercial motor vehicle that requires a person to obtain a commercial driver’s license as defined in section 28-3001 and the person has an alcohol concentration of 0.04 or more.

Although Prop 207 changed the marijuana laws in Arizona, it is still illegal to operate a motor vehicle if you are under the influence of marijuana. Much like alcohol, if you are convicted for a marijuana DUI, it can have serious repercussions on your life. You could be facing either jail or prison time, stiff fines, and a criminal record. Also, having a valid medical marijuana card will not protect you if you are charged with a marijuana DUI.

With all the changes in the law concerning marijuana, it is important that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney if you have been charged with a marijuana DUI. An experienced attorney may be able to raise possible defenses such as the level of cannabis metabolite in your system was not enough to cause impairment.

Our long successful record includes a jury trial victory despite having 83 lbs of marijuana present and located in the vehicle as well as successful 4th Amendment suppression motions resulting in dismissals of all charges.

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more
