Bruce M. Blythe, Attorney at Law, Toll Free 1-877-202-3834
California has enacted VC 23152e which specifically addresses DUI
when the person is under the influence of drugs alone. The drug
could be any substance that can impair a person's ability to drive a
motor vehicle. A conviction has serious consequences for anyone
concerned about the loss of their license, jail and the impact it has on
their DMV record.
In Kern County, as with other areas of California, a person can be
charged with Vehicle Code 23152 or "DUI" if they are determined to
be driving under the influence of any drug, it doesn't even have to be
a controlled or illicit substance. The most common drugs that the
cops look for are Marijuana, Soma, Ecstacy, Methamphetamine,
Heroin, Cocaine and prescription drugs such as Vicodin, Xanax, and
other pain killers. DUID is the nickname for the offense and for
nearly 20 years we have been fighting these charges in Kern County.
If a driver displays the symptoms of drug use the CHP or other
"DRE". The DRE is trained to detect signs of drug impairment from
most drugs. The Officer that originally stopped the individual and
turned them over to the DRE will usually not make the arrest but will
be part of the DUI case to establish the basis for the original stop and
the events leading up to the detention and arrest. Most trained cops
are going to follow a series of steps outlined in their training manual,
our lawyers have that book and we use it against officers in Court.
The most frequent types of chemical tests given to a DUI-Drugs
suspect will be the urine or blood test. These test are administered
once breath is used to rule out the use of alcohol as the cause of the
impairment. The state mandates that the officer follow
predetermined regulations in the handling and collection of the
Urine and Blood tests can be challenged by an experienced DUI
Lawyer, our attorneys have undergone extensive training in attacking
DUI tests such as urinalysis and the gas chromatograph used to
analyze bodily fluids for drugs that impair driving.
