Have You Been Arrested for a DUI? Attain Targeted Legal Help.

Work with attorneys who understand the complexities of criminal defense and who can successfully fight to protect your rights.



In most cases, the terms "driving under the influence" or "DUI" are usually associated with the consumption of alcohol. It is true that most DUI charges and convictions are against those who recklessly attempt to operate a motor vehicle while drunk, but a person can also be arrested for driving under the influence of any type of illegal substance. When a police officer pulls someone over under suspicion of DUI, they could ask the suspect to take a drug test in order to prove their intoxication. In the case of illegal drugs, a urine test will show the presence of drug metabolites in the person's system. Drug metabolites are created when the liver breaks down drugs in order to render them harmless, and are evident in a person's urine when a drug test is administered.


According to the A.R.S. §28-1381, anyone who drives under the influence "while there is any drug defined in §13-3401 or its metabolite in the person's body" is guilt of DUI. Such drugs include marijuana (including medical marijuana), narcotic drugs, dangerous drugs and prescription medications. Even if the drug was prescribed by a licensed physician, it is still illegal to drive while you are affected by the drug. So, even when you use a medication that has been prescribed by a doctor, be sure that you review any possible side-effects and avoid operating a vehicle until the effects have passed.
