Aggressive Marijuana DUI Defense

Keep in mind being charged with a Marijuana DUI is usually based on an officer's subjective opinion. Blood tests only corroborate that Marijuana (THC) is in a persons blood stream but means nothing else. An officer may attempt to use road side tests to prove Marijuana impairment. These tests are often flawed in there application and interpretation of results. In fact in one particular study that compared a placebo group with those who used marijuana, found no difference in performance on the walk and turn test. Such science can support the defense that a driver may have used marijuana but is not impaired by it. It is extremely beneficial to contact a knowledgeable attorney at the Law Offices of Steve Karimi, who is prepared to eliminate the government from interfering with your life.
