Question: Can get a DUI in San Fernando Court for being under the influence of marijuana even if I have a medical marijuana card?

Yes. It is possible to get a marijuana DUI even if you have a medical license. The medical license may give you some state rights to possess or smoke marijuana, but it doesn’t give the right to drive if intoxicated. That being said, marijuana DUI’s are often good cases to fight as there are a lot of potential defenses in those cases.
