Question: Can I get a DUI while on prescribed medication in CA?

Answer: It is possible to get charged with a DUI based on prescription medication. I am currently handling 2 cases like that now. The 1 leg stand test can be tough to pass for an athlete under perfect conditions….forget about dealing with the stress of being on the side of the road and getting interrogated by an officer. The fact that you are disabled is a defense to them claiming you didn’t pass that test. Feel free to contact me through if you would like to discuss your case in more detail.
