Question: DUI in Van Nuys, CA. Does a marijuana DUI have the same impact as a regular DUI?

Answer: If there is a DUI conviction, it will have a lot of the same similarities. You would be charged with a VC 23152(a), driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If someone gets an alcohol only DUI, they are often charged with a VC 23152(b) as well. I can be reached through if you would like to discuss further. These are usually good cases to fight as marijuana related DUI’s are generally tougher to prove by the prosecutor than alcohol related offenses.
