Michigan Marijuana DUI/OWI Laws Are Changing

With the recent passage of Proposition 1 legalizing the possession and usage of marijuana for people 21 years and older, the laws governing DUI and OWI related to marijuana are changing.

It used to be that if any THC (the active drug in Marijuana) was found in your system, that was proof enough of intoxication and impairment – regardless of when the drug was actually consumed.

Now specially trained police officers known as Drug Recognition Experts (DRE’s) will evaluate your level of impairment on-site.

If you’re being charged with a marijuana-related offence, you need an attorney who knows DUI/OWI law for alcohol and marijuana offences frontwards and backwards. Click Here to learn more about Michigan’s changing marijuana DUI/OWI laws.
