Marijuana DUI Defense In Pennsylvania
Defending a marijuana DUI case is different than a conventional alcohol induced DUI. Initially it must be determined that the police had reason to pull you over. Once it is established that the police had sufficient reason to pull you over the focus of the defense may shift to how was the marijuana detected in your system. Typically a blood or urine test is used to determine the concentration of THC, a breakdown product of marijuana consumption, in your blood or urine. There can be flaws in a marijuana blood or urine test that can help your case in court. Flaws may be test accuracy, was the marijuana medically prescribed and how long had it been since you ingested it prior to driving. Mr. Gambone will use his in depth knowledge of Pennsylvania DUI Law and Pennsylvania Marijuana Laws to devise a solid and strategic defense. Having your charges dropped or dismissed is his ultimate goal. If that cannot happen he will do her best to have the charges lessened.
