That is over the "legal limit" for marijuana essentially. However I have seen much higher. A good DUI attorney can often keep urine/blood tests out.

The compound is a THC metabolite (THC is the active ingredient in weed. So there is no "normal" level). Blood or urine testing can be kept out of court but it takes an advanced DUI attorney to do it. I recommend looking for an attorney who is a member of the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers who just attended the Advanced DUI Seminar in Columbus. New issues regarding the problems with chemical analyses were discussed in detail over two days.

This is well over the legal limit for Marijuana Metabolite (caboxy-tetrahydrocannabinol). To know more about the level it would be necessary to know if this was a blood or a urine test. The legal limit for this for a urine test is less than 35 nanograms per milliLeter of urine. The legal limit in the blood or plasthma is 10 nanograms/mL of blood/plasma. Your friend is in a lot of trouble and needs to hire an experienced DUI attorney to assist them. I suggest you contact Neil Rubin or Matthew Bangerter. You can find their information on AVVO. They are two of the best DUI attorneys in your area. Good luck.
