Legal Drug Use and Your DUI Offense

Naturally, as human beings we are dependent on a number of medications for our daily health. Whether we take a few pills each morning for our daily dosage of vitamins, or we are living off of a set of powerful medications to treat our chronic illness; for the majority of Americans medications are a way of life. According to research compiled by Forbes, there are an estimated 34% of Americans taking at least one prescription medication on a daily basis, 11.5% of them take at least three per day and 6.5% of them take four or more daily. While that may not be half of the population, that is still a large number of people who are dependent on some form of medication for their health.

What many people may not realize is the fact that these prescription drugs may have such a strong effect on your person that you may be arrested for driving under the influence of drugs, just like a person arrested for a DUI with alcohol. Anything that makes a person incapable of operating a motor vehicle constitutes them as driving under the influence if they choose to get behind the wheel of a moving car.

If you have been arrested for a DUI after taking a prescription medication, you may have either knowingly taken a pill that causes drowsiness or perhaps your prescription offered no warning to users about the potential dangers of the prescription. Whatever the case may be, if you or a loved one has been arrested for a DUI of either drugs or alcohol, contact a trusted Tampa DUI attorney at Thomas & Paulk, P.A. today! We are committed to helping the people in our community and the surrounding areas, offering them the experienced defense that they need fighting relentlessly on their behalf.
