Can Drugs Lead to DUI Charges?

Counsel from a West Palm Beach DUI Lawyer

Under Florida law, it is illegal for a person to drive while under the influence of alcohol, chemical substances, or controlled substances, which cause impaired driving.

Type of Substances Involved in DUI Charges

Since Florida DUI laws apply to both alcohol and drugs, many different substances can be involved in a DUI case. Even just have prescription drugs in your system could result in DUI charges and subsequent penalties. That is why it is so important that you are aware of your rights and the laws surrounding DUI.

Some of the substances can include the following:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Prescription medication (anti-anxiety, anti-addiction, and painkillers)
