I agree with Attorney Williams: yes, you could indeed get jail time for driving a car while high on phencyclidine regardless of whether your use of the family member's car was authorized or otherwise. I would recommend hiring an attorney in your area who practices criminal defense law (perhaps Attorney Williams) because it sounds like you are going to need one.
