So Pot is Legal in Washington now? Nope, not if it appreciably affects your driving it’s not!!!

Did you, a loved one, or a friend recently get stopped for a Washington State Marijuana or other drug- related DUI? Washington State's new 502 (recreational usage of marijuana legalization) legislation does NOT protect you from a DUI. In fact, it has already increased the number of DUI cases in our state.

Whether smoking or ingesting be careful when driving!

The prosecution, whether the State of Washington, a County or a municipality, has the burden of proving your guilt of all of the elements of a DUI, of any type, beyond a reasonable doubt.  As an experienced criminal defense /DUI attorney, it is my job to make it hard for the Prosecuting Attorney to do that.

Marijuana DUI cases, which are still evolving as the courts, prosecutors and the defense bar grapple to understand this somewhat new legal area of criminal law, are generally tough and often technically or even scientifically complex and involved cases.  I urge you to protect yourself – consult an experienced Washington State Marijuana or other drug-related defense lawyer right away. You may get your charge reduced to something lesser, or even get it dismissed. 

A DUI conviction, whether for alcohol or any drug, can never be vacated or expunged in the future.  So don't delay getting help now.

 

If you get stopped with pot in your system and are charged with a Washington Marijuana DUI or any other type of DUI, call me for a free consultation, Phillip L. Weinberg, experienced Washington State DUI and Marijuana DUI Defense Attorney.  Put my 26 years of criminal and DUI defense experience to work for you.  I'm available 24/7:  (425) 367-1122(425) 367-1122.

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.
