Friend got pulled over for suspicion of DUI but was not drinking only had Weed in system.
He was found with a blunt in his posession. They had him blow he blew zero, they took him in for a blood test, and booked him in jail. How strict are laws in Utah for this sort of crime since it's not alcohol related. Are they allowed to do both tests on him? What is the protocol for the police on the scene for this kind of crime. Is it easier to get these charges dropped in court compared to an alcohol DUI? I'm sure they will have him do a drug evaluation to determine probation and classes. How should he prepare for court if he can only afford a public defender? I know prolonging a trial usually helps get a better deal with a prosecutor, just looking for some advice to give him to prepare for his dmv hearing he will request before the 10 days and things that help in trial.

On probation for a DUI; does Salt Lake AP&P administer ETG Alcohol Urinalysis, or just random breathalyzers?
I was represented by a public defender and entered a plea to a DUI. The Court gave me community service instead of jail, but also put me on two years probation to be supervised by the Dept. of Corrections Adult Probation & Parole. Court also ordered no alcohol. I have my first meeting with my probation officer on Thursday, and am wondering if AP&P does ETG urinalysis to test for alcohol consumption. I called my public defender and he said he withdrew after the sentencing and couldn't tell me. Wondering if anyone knows whether AP&P does ETG testing for court-ordered probation. Thanks.
If you have a condition of no alcohol while you are on probation, then you can bet your probation officer will either...
