How are Marijuana DUI’s Charged?
There is no specific defined threshold dictating whether a person can be charged for having marijuana in their system or not, unlike the statutes relating to Arizona’s DUI laws involving the consumption of alcohol. For example, at a minimum, Arizona DUI laws state that a person is guilty of a DUI if “the person has an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more within two hours of driving or being in actual physical control of the vehicle.” However, as it relates to the presence of marijuana in your system, you can be guilty of DUI for merely having a metabolite of marijuana in your order.
Marijuana metabolites can remain in the human body for many days, sometimes leading into a month. Although metabolites of marijuana can be present in a person’s body long after they experience symptoms of impairment, the government can still charge you with a DUI.
