Different DUI DrugsDriving under the influence does not only apply to alcohol. You can be arrested for DUID (Driving Under the Influence of Drugs), which would encompass any variety of substances.
These include, but arent limited to:
- Prescription Medications
- Over the counter Medicines
The drugs taken can be Legal, Illegal, or Prescribed. Even taking over-the-counter cold medicine can result in a DUID case. The only question is whether the legal definition of driving under the influence of drugs is satisfied.
The charges for these can be more severe than alcohol intoxication. There is no “legal limit” when it comes to driving under the influence of drugs in California. The sole question is whether the driver is impaired, and there is no magic number as in a drunk driving case.
