Part 3: I-502 was Passed in 2012 – How it Affects Marijuana DUI's in Washington

Pre-November 6, 2012, Marijuana DUI cases in Washington were prosecuted like “other drug” DUI's.  Before that date there was no measurable or announced threshold level of THC that made driving at that blood concentration of THC illegal – but now this has changed. 

So, after December 6, 2012, you are considered per se impaired if your blood THC level comes back from the lab with .05 nanograms/milliliter or greater of THC.  The same penalties apply in that case to a DUI based upon alcohol but if the level of THC is at or above. 05 the WA DOL takes the same administrative driver's license suspension action as it would for those driving impaired on alcohol with a blow or blood test above the 0.08 alcohol legal limit.

Phillip L. Weinberg

I have more than 20 years of experience defending my clients' rights. I handle all cases personally from start to finish, ensuring that each of my clients gains the full benefit of my many years of experience. At my firm, there are no associates right out of law school showing up in court knowing practically nothing about you or your case, I know my way around the courts and how they work. Throughout my career, I have learned that the best approach is not always the most aggressive one, though sometimes there is no other choice. My first goal in every case is the dismissal of my client's charge(s). In many situations, however, I have found that negotiation offers better opportunities for success.When you work with me your case will never be passed off to a paralegal or a less-experienced associate. I am a solo practitioner and always have been.
