Defending You From Marijuana So-Called "Green" DUI Charges In Seattle

It is legal to possess and consume certain amounts of cannabis for recreational use in Washington. However, more and more people are being charged with so-called "green DUIs," or driving under the influence of marijuana.

It is illegal to drive while impaired by weed or any other substance. However, the police cannot measure marijuana use with a breath test, as they can with alcohol consumption. Instead, they have to use a blood test to measure the level of THC (the active chemical in pot) in your blood. If your test shows five nanograms of THC or more per milliliter (the cannabis equivalent of .08 blood alcohol content (BAC)), you may be charged with DUI marijuana.
