Driving while under the influence of prescription drugs can lead to a DUI arrest and possibly a conviction that will carry the same penalties as an alcohol-related DUI charge. However, unlike an alcohol-related DUI, drug DUI cases can be easier to defend because:
Every individual has a different tolerance for prescription medication;
There is no legal limit (like the 0.08 alcohol limit) for the amount of drugs in someone’s system that will or will not indicate impairment; therefore,
Prosecutors trying to achieve a conviction in a drug DUI case typically can only rely on thearresting officer’s witness testimony and evidence that the driver was driving recklessly or somehow disobeying traffic laws due to alleged impairment.

You were not, in fact, impaired, based on expert witness testimony from a toxicologist or drug recognition expert.
Allegations of reckless driving may have been due to poor weather or road conditions, lack of signage or signals on the roadways and/or objects or animals in the roadways.
Physical evidence of impairment that an officer has recorded in a police report, such as red, watery eyes, may have been caused by allergies or some other medical condition.
