California DUI of Drugs Cases
California Vehicle Code (VC) section 23152(a)
Prohibits driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The police can arrest you for driving under the influence of drugs, even lawfully prescribed ones, if the drug has impaired your ability to operate a motor vehicle safely.
The Penalties for DUI of Drugs are identical to any other DUI. This is because the issue is not how you got “under the influence”, but is if you were under the influence and did you intentionally drive that way.

As stated, the issue is not how you got “under the influence”. The issue is did you intentionally drive that way. Therefore, we may be to argue, as the facts permit, that the drugs you took were not only legally prescribed by your physician but were newly prescribed and affected you in unfamiliar ways. Thus, you did not know that the prescribed medication would adversely affect you so as to impede your senses. Therefore, you had no intention to driving under the influence. This could make it possible to get the charges reduced or dismissed.
