If you are arrested on the suspicion of being high on marijuana, cocaine, prescription drugs being used recreationally, or other controlled dangerous substances (CDS), you are at risk for penalties that will disrupt your life significantly.
For most people, the threat of a license suspension of up to two years is enough to make the situation feel very real.
On top of that, you’ll face fines of up to $1,000, as well as court costs and monetary assessments.
In addition, the prosecution doesn’t have to prove you were intoxicated by a particular substance, merely that you were displaying the signs of intoxication by a CDS.
It’s a low bar to meet, and to protect yourself, you need an experienced lawyer who can counter the prosecution’s allegations and provide an alternative view.
