Arizona has some of the strictest DUI laws in the United States. Depending on a range of factors, including your level of intoxication, it is possible to be charged with a felony. Under certain circumstances, such as driving a commercial vehicle with a BAC over 0.04 or driving with any alcohol in your system if you are under 21, you can be charged with a DUI. To sum it up, if the officer thinks you are slightly impaired, they can, and often will, arrest you.
In addition, you can receive a DUI if you are under the influence of drugs, even if you are unimpaired and a doctor prescribed them. This includes medical marijuana.
