My uncle, who is undocumented, was pulled over on Saturday for driving under the influence. After being tested, he also came out positive to Marijuana. It is his first DUI and there was no one injured nor an accident. We're still awaiting court on Tuesday, but would like to know what is the best way to handle the situation.
