This is the exact reason why you hire an attorney to deal with the DMV and not try to represent yourself. The funny thing is if you were arrested for a marijuana DUI the DMV would not have suspended your license. The reason they suspended your license is your insistence on the fact that you have a medical marijuana card and need medical marijuana to assist you with a chronic problem. Try to understand that having a medical marijuana card does not allow you to smoke marijuana or have marijuana on you everywhere you go. This is especially true if you plan on driving. The DMV will suspend anyone’s license if they feel that person is constantly on a drug prescribed or not due to the dangers it creates to the community. I fear that you trying to talk your way out of this will just lead to more problems. Please hire a trained professional that knows what to say and how to say it so that you do not get yourself in more trouble. Hire an attorney.
The DMV will suspend your license if they feel you possess a risk as a result of your MJ use. The MJ card told them that you are a chronic user and even though it may be allowed, you still cannot drive "under the influence". You need to have an attoney who specializes in DUI to handle the DMV. You will have to prove to the DMV that you do not present a risk to the driving public.
Appeal the ruling. there is a form your doctor needs to fill out to show the DMV you do not pose a risk. Hire a qualified attorney like Mr. Wapner to assist you. He is listed at the Ca. Dui Lawyers Assoc. website as qualified to handle just this typw of case.(other attys. may be found there , as well)
