As an experienced Amherst DWI Attorney I am often asked if one can get a DWI if they are under the influence of marijuana. I represent many young adults and college students. I recently had a case in Amherst where my client was a student at the University of Buffalo. He was charged with driving while impaired by drugs. When he was pulled over, the officer smelled the odor of marijuana coming from his car and his person. He then admitted to driving after he had just smoked some marijuana. The penalties for smoking marijuana or ingesting any drug are nearly identical as those for drinking alcohol. Your license may be revoked, you can have a penalty of fines and/or jail imposed as well.
Did you just get a DWI as a result of being under the influence of marijuana? If so, contact the experienced Amherst DWI Attorney Arthur Pressman.
