Kansas City DUI with Drugs Attorney
Facing Criminal Charges for a DUI Involving Drugs?
Many people assume that a criminal charge of
DUI is only relating to the use of alcohol when driving under the influence.
This, however, is untrue. In fact, a DUI can often be charged to a driver
who was found to be driving under the influence of drugs - such as marijuana,
heroin, Ecstasy or even a prescription drug. It doesn't matter if you
procured the drug legally, if you are found to be impaired in any way
from the drug, you could be facing serious criminal charges and penalties.

How can I fight prescription drug DUI charges?
Many people take prescription drugs for a variety of ailments and medical reasons. Whether the drugs affected you more than expected or you used multiple legal drugs at once, without realizing the danger, it could lead to dangerous driving. However, this does not mean that you are guilty of driving under the influence. While the laws may be clear on how much alcohol can be in a person's system without causing serious impairment, there are no true standards set for prescription drug use. This means that a skilled attorney may be able to effectively fight your charges and have them dropped.
Prescription drugs that have been known to cause impairment include:
- Sleeping pills
If you are taking any of these types of prescriptions, you may be accused of DUI. An officer will need a substantial reason to pull you over, such as weaving, running through a stop light, or causing an accident. If they do not have reasonable cause, your charges may be thrown out. They will also need to prove that you had enough legal drugs in your system for it to cause impairing side effects.
