Driving Under The Influence of Marijuana

Were you or a loved one accused of driving under the influence of marijuana in New York? Despite the changing laws, this still remains a crime in New York that can be punishable by fines, loss of license or even jail time. Don’t fight these charges alone, schedule a free consultation with the experienced Long Island drug crime attorneys at The Matera Law Firm for dedicated representation you can count on.


Currently in New York, if you are found to be driving while your ability is impaired by marijuana, you can be arrested and you can be convicted. It’s important to keep in mind that on average, marijuana stays in your system for a period of 28 days. So a blood test, if you’ve consumed marijuana in the previous twenty eight days, is going to show its existence.

Currently, there are new laws that are being written in the state of New York regarding marijuana consumption, and it remains to be seen exactly how these laws are going to impact the ability to be arrested for driving while impaired by marijuana.
