Driving Under the Influence of Prescription Drugs Or Illegal Drugs Will Land You a DUI Charge
With the amount of prescription drugs used rising, so are the drug induced DWIs. Since a narcotic is a drug by law, the law also hands out the highest penalties for drug related DUI offenses. Impaired driving involving prescription narcotics happens, despite the fact these prescriptions explicitly state ‘do not drive or operate machinery while taking medication’ – people still do. Therefore, driving while under the influence may be a DUI without having consumed any alcohol.
