Driving Under the Influence of Drugs
California Vehicle Code 23152(a) makes it illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. “Drugs” is defined as any substance, other than alcohol, which affects your brain, nervous system or muscles. Driving under the influence of drugs is considered a crime regardless of whether the drugs are illegal drugs such as heroin, prescription drugs such as Xanax, or over-the-counter drugs such as NyQuil.
Like a DUI with alcohol, DUI of drugs is a misdemeanor in California. But the offense can be filed as a felony if it’s a fourth DUI offense, you have a prior felony DUI conviction on your record, or it’s a DUI with injury. The consequences for a DUI are the same regardless of whether it’s a DUI with drugs or alcohol, but the penalties will increase depending on your criminal record and past DUI convictions.

I was charged with a DUI for driving under the influence of drugs. I hired Seyb Law Group to represent me and I’m so glad I did. Spencer knew exactly what to do, and after working hard on my case and hiring experts to testify on my behalf, my case got dropped to reckless driving. The entire law firm is amazing and if you have been arrested you should seriously think about hiring Seyb Law Group.
