Legal Help Against Drug-Related DUI Charges
The great majority of arrests for driving under the influence (DUI) in Georgia involve alcohol. However, there are also specific laws providing for DUI charges and prosecution of people accused of operating a vehicle with illegal drugs or certain prescription drugs in their systems.
We Know Georgia DUI Laws And Drug Case Defense Strategies
Georgia “drugged and driving” laws have several nuances, and the statute covering DUI for marijuana use recently changed. If you or a family member has been charged with drug-related DUI in the Atlanta or Augusta area, you should seek counsel from a lawyer experienced in handling both driving crimes and drug crimes.
