Know How Michigan Marijuana Legalization Changes DUI/OWI Charges

With the passage of Proposition 1, Marijuana will be legal in the state of Michigan for people 21 years and older. That considerably changes the landscape of DUI and OWI laws for marijuana related offences.

The Three Reasons Why You NEED an Experienced DUI/OWI Attorney:

  1. They must be able to thoroughly and intelligently cross-examine the Drug Recognition Expert and raise doubt over the opinion of impairment or intoxication.
  2. They must have a reliable network of toxicology and recognition experts to rely on to rebut the state’s case. 
  3. They must be able to persuade jurors why a person should not be convicted of a DUI where other factors might have contributed to the alleged impairment.  

A lot is changing in DUI/OWI laws and you need an attorney experienced and qualified to handle your case. Click Here to learn more about Michigan’s new marijuana DUI laws.

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.
