DWI Drug Defense Lawyers In Wake County

In North Carolina, it is against the law to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs. That includes illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine and amphetamines, and also commonly prescribed prescription drugs.

However, unlike alcohol, there are problems when attempting to prove drug impairment. For example, the remnants of THC can remain in the blood for weeks after the use of marijuana. That doesn't stop prosecutors in Wake County and elsewhere from charging people with DWI drug offenses. The consequences of a DWI drug conviction are the same as a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol. You face the possible loss of your driver's license, a hefty fine, increased insurance premiums and jail time.

DWI Drug Defense Strategies

In DWI drug cases, police officers rely on visual observation to judge impairment at the time of the stop. However, many conditions can mimic the symptoms of drug usage, such as fatigue, allergies or blood sugar level.

When our law firm represents you, we will thoroughly review every aspect of your case, including:

  • Your driving behavior prior to the stop
  • The police officer's initial inquiries and explanation for the stop
  • Your performance of field sobriety tests
  • The reliability of blood or urine tests
  • Existence of medical conditions that may not indicate impairment, such as diabetes
  • Violation of your rights before, during and after your arrest

These and other factors could serve as the basis for a potentially successful defense strategy.
