2014 marks the 238th anniversary of the United States’ declaration of independence from British rule and the establishment of our own slef-governed country. Expert DUI defense attorney Mark N. Weingart knows that the great people of Arizona know how to celebrate Independence Day in proper form, and hopes that they celebrate safely and responsibly. As always, multiple law enforcement agencies will be out in full force to combat those driving and operating watercraft under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Sobriety checkpoints and increased law enforcement presence on waterways, highways, and high traffic areas are bound to yield multiple DUI arrests. In 2013, Arizona had over 14,000 DUI arrests statewide according to data entered by the Statewide Agencies reporting on the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.

As the legal landscape surrounding marijuana and DUI charges stemming from its use continues to take shape, Mark Weingart would like to proffer some advice: operating a boat or motor vehicle under the influence of marijuana could result in serious DUI charges. Even though the Arizona Supreme Court recently decided that the presence of Carboxy-THC in the bloodstream of those charged with DUI or OUI is not sufficient evidence to garner a conviction for DUI, there is still a significant risk of a serious DUI charge for driving or operating a boat or personal watercraft while under the influence of marijuana or other THC products. Our firm also provides cutting-edge representation for those charged with DUI or OUI charges stemming from marijuana and other drugs as well. Consequences for DUI offenses in Arizona can be severe, which is why it is so important to have an expert DUI attorney like Mark Weingart in your corner fighting for your best interests.
