Can I be charged with a felony "under the influence of a controlled substance" in Nevada after a positive blood test for THC?
I was driving in Nevada and the officer "smelled marijuana" and said that was probable cause to have my blood drawn and submit to field sobriety tests, etc. I was charged with DUI and a felony "under the influence" after (I can only assume) testing positive for THC.

Does it matter which online DUI school I attend?
I have to attend a DUI class for my drunk driving case and the Las Vegas Justice Court told me I could take an online DUI school if I wished.

How long can I expect DUI classes to take? Can I transfer classes from Colorado?
While in Colorado I was convicted of DWAI. I have priors. Colorado has a lifetime lookback so priors from 12 and 15 years ago count for both sentencing and for DUI class length. If I can move back to Nevada how long can I expect DUI classes to be? My BAC was 0.09. Also will I be able to transfer the 6 months of classes I already took in Colorado?
