Understanding Marijuana DUIs In New Jersey

A marijuana DUI charge in New Jersey can bring about serious consequences. Despite changing attitudes and laws toward cannabis, driving under its influence remains a legal offense with substantial penalties. At Bastarrika, Soto, Gonzalez & Somohano, L.L.P., we are well-versed in the nuances of New Jersey’s DUI laws and are prepared to mount a strong defense on your behalf.

Potential consequences of a marijuana DUI conviction may include:

  • Fines and surcharges
  • Losing your license
  • Up to 30 days in jail for a first-time offender
  • More jail time for repeated offenses

Unlike alcohol-related DUI cases, there is no blood alcohol concentration test to determine impairment from marijuana. However, law enforcement can use other methods such as an assessment by a Drug Evaluation Expert (DRE) or through a urine or blood test.

Depending on the specifics of your case and your criminal history, you can temporarily or permanently lose your driver’s license after a DUI. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to prevent that from happening or to get your license back as soon as possible.
