Drug & Prescription Medication DUI

Pennsylvania DUI-Drug related Defense Lawyer

Pennsylvania's harsh drunk driving laws now apply to controlled substances, both illegal and prescription medication. Under Pennsylvania DUI penalties, an individual who is caught driving, operating or in control of the operation of a vehicle with traces of sleeping medication such as Ambien, Restoril or Valium, or anti-depression medication like Alprazolam, Xanax, Xanor or Niravam will not only be charged with a Pennsylvania DUI, but in the most serious categories of Pa DUI offenses (third tier). Ciccarelli Lawyers are the experienced Pennsylvania Defense Lawyers that are reasonable and ready to fight for you.

Speak to an experienced DUI attorney if you are facing charges of driving after imbibing drugs including prescription medication.  Look to our experienced defense team to fight the serious penalties that you may be facing.  Our legal looks to contest your charges and looks to review the prosecution’s evidence and determine your rights in contesting the admissibility and legality of the prosecution’s case.   

Pennsylvania has a "per se" limit of how much of the drug you're permitted to have in your system and that can have grave impact on a potential marijuana dui case. Under Pennsylvania's per se marijuana laws, you can be convicted of DUID if you have 5 ng/ml, or nanograms per milliliter, of THC in your system. Contact us to discuss the factors involved in once the prosecution seeks to pursue charges for driving after imbibing marijuana as well as understanding the drugscan report they will look to use to prosecute you.   

In some cases, you will need to consider retaining an expert and we can assist in obtaining expert opinion to review and reveal how different medications metabolize or travel through your body at different rates.  

Stimulants such as methamphetamine and cocaine do not stay in your system for long, while marijuana can remain in your system for much longer. The obvious concern is that you could be charged for a DUI for marijuana ingestion from days agos or more and without any obvious symptoms of marijuana smoking.
