Driving Under the Influence of prescription medications or drugs

Driving under the influence of drugs is a serious offense and carries the same consequences as driving under the influence of alcohol. You may be prosecuted for D.U.I. even if you have taken medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor.

Lawful possession of prescription medication does not entitle a person to drive under the influence of the drug to the extent their normal faculties are impaired. If you are impaired by a controlled substance you may be prosecuted and convicted of D.U.I. The consequences for a conviction on a drug-related D.U.I. can be require probation, the suspension of your driving privilege, fines, court costs, jail time, among others.
