Do you have a question? It sounds like you have a possible defense that an aggressive defense attorney could work with.
I enjoy the occasional joint of marijuana here and there. I have a friend who was arrested for a DWAI - drugs when he was high driving and they urine tested him. I do not drive high, I would be too worried about something happening. I am however worried that if I am legitimately tired or suffering from allergies and the officer believes I am high. Can he then give me a urine test, which would show cannabis in your system up to 30 days? Can they actually arrest you and charge you with this based on your urine? How can they prove it was in your system at the time of driving?

Is it possible to get my aggravated DWI case dismissed?
I was arrested for an aggravated DWI on halloween 2015, the sheriff arrested me and i was released and got a lawyer. The sheriff's department lost my paperwork that says that the breathalyzer was working correctly, and also there were some mistakes on my arrest report. My lawyer gave the sheriff's department 6 months to find my paperwork, which they didn't. After going to court dates every month for 6 months with nothing happening, they are finally negotiating a deal. My lawyer has been pushing me to get evaluated by TASC and is trying to work out a deal where I do TASC and they charge me with a violation instead of a misdemeanor. I don't really trust my lawyer and feel he is much too eager to help the DA and send me to TASC rather than get me the best deal. Is it possible this case could've been/can be dismissed? Or should I listen to my lawyer and go to TASC? He told me to make an appointment for evaluation with TASC and let him know when it was, that was 2 months ago and I haven't done it cause i want a second opinion, but also need to get this over with because it has been almost 9 months and i haven't even been sentenced yet. He hasn't even contacted me in months.
You should listen to your attorney. He has no interest in helping the DA. You are his client. A violation instead...
Can I get my dwi charges dropped to a reduced offense?
I was pulled over and was arrested after the officer did a sobriety test because he said my eyes were red (I was crying because I had broken up with my boyfriend when I got pulled over) he also did the breathalyzer four times and came up with the number 0.14 is there any way I can plea to a reduced offense other than a dwi, I have a clean record, there was no one else in the car, no car accident and I was coming from my friend's house, my last drink was at 10 pm and I got pulled over at 1 AM
