Driving Under the Influence of Drugs

Texas law is strict and uncompromising when it comes to driving under the influence of drugs (DUID). If you are pulled over and a law enforcement officer is suspicious that you are under the influence of a drug or narcotic, you will be requested to take a blood or urine test to determine the amount of the suspected narcotic in your blood. Even if you carry a legal prescription for a drug, if it has impaired your driving, you can and will be charged with an offense.

Other narcotics that a law enforcement officer will be testing for include:

  • Marijuana
  • Hallucinogenic Drugs
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Heroin
  • Prescription Drugs

Consequences of a DUID Conviction in Plano, TX

A law enforcement officer may also request that you take a series of field sobriety tests. There are several kinds of tests that the officer may ask you to do, and the officer will observe your balance, agility, and other factors to evaluate whether they think that you are under the influence of a drug or narcotic.

These tests are less accurate than blood tests because the results are based only on what the officer observed. However, if you appear to be impaired in some way per the officer's evaluation, the likelihood remains that you will be arrested and asked to submit to other testing.

If you have had the misfortune of such an arrest, the penalties can include:

  • Steep fines
  • Time spent in jail
  • Extensive community service requirements
  • Loss of legal right to drive a vehicle

Your ability to work and live normally can be seriously hampered if you are convicted of driving under the influence of drugs. So, don't take any chances when your future and your livelihood are hanging in the balance.

Your most reliable option at this time is to enlist the help of an experienced DWI attorney who can evaluate the circumstances regarding your arrest and the evidence being used against you.
