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.
Probable cause depends on the facts on whether there were other occupants. Also, based on the recent Supreme Court case...
Third DUI offender and sentenced for the third one. 18 months of time completed and now I am out and on my own completely. I want to go on a cruise with my significant other from LA to Mexico and I don't know if there are international travel laws (regarding criminal records) barring me from entering Mexico on a cruiseline. Will I need special documentation? Or will I need any kind of special preparation protocol to follow to expedite the process to cross Mexico's border by rules of Mexico and/or the American cruiseline (Carnival)?

I was arrested today due to me falling asleep behind the wheel. The officer administered a dui field test which he said I failed all 3 test. He arrested me and said I needed to take the breathalyzer. I refused to take the test so he issued a search warrant and was signed for by the judge to take blood. I took the blood test and stayed in Jail from approx. 3:25 am to noon today. The officer never took my license but the court date is may 21st. What steps should I take in resolving this issue? The paper work shows the wrong time for the blood test and wrong date, they took the test with a camcorder.
Big trouble ahead Hire counsel.

I got a DUI in Georgia 5 years ago. I blew a .09 at the initial traffic stop and then when tested at the station an hour later I blew a .135. I plead guilty in court, but was not ordered to take a class. I was ordered to pay a fine. I was unable to pay the fine and got a probation violation. I served my time and the debt was considered paid. It was my first offense. Now, it is 5 years later and I live in Nevada and want to get my license back. It's been so long and I'm not sure exactly where to begin to get all of this straightened out.
You should call the DMV in Georgia to ask them what needs to be done to get valid there again. Here are a few different...
