I only had THC in my system, as I am permanently disabled and have a medical marijuana card. No other substances. Driving pattern was good (not stopped for erratic driving).
No odor of marijuana, nor possession of any in vehicle.
I gave blood. Can someone please give me a scale of levels vs. impairment, etc.
When I get results, I want to know what they mean in layman's terms.
Thank you.They are offering a "Wet Reckless" but that is pretty much the same as "DUI." I had drunk some marijuana tea at 8 am and got pulled over at 1 am the next morning. I was in no way impaired or influenced by the marijuana, and I use it regularly for medical reasons. Due to liver-damaging prescription pills that I have been taking since 1998, my doctor advised the alternative pain alleviation of medical marijuana. I had been using since April 2011 and was cited in September of 2011, so I’m sure it was in my system, but I was not affected by the use from approximately 17 hrs prior to stop. This is ludicrous for them to try to enact the law this way. They are currently trying to enact a law of NO TOLERANCE but at this time it is not so. With the way they are pursuing my case, they think they can take the law into their own hands and charge me as if it were already so. I will take it to trial regardless. Do Public Defenders really work for you, or do they side with the D.A. as they are also county employees?
