Understanding Substance DUI Charges

While most people associate DUI with alcohol, DUI can actually be any substance that impairs the driver’s ability to safely operate machinery and react in an appropriate manner. Even legal prescription medications can be dangerous if they are taken in excessive amounts or if the consumer does not follow doctor’s instructions to not drive while using the medication. A DUI of drugs can include over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, illegal and controlled substances, and even medical substances like anesthetics.

Penalties for driving under the influence of drugs can vary depending on a variety of factors, but common penalties can include:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Fines of up to $1,800
  • Probation
  • Additional charges and penalties associated with drug crimes

While most DUI with drugs charges are classified as misdemeanors, there is also a chance that your case could be elevated to a felony offense. Whatever charges you are facing, you should always work with a Palm Springs substance DUI lawyer to better your chances of an optimal outcome.
