If you are intoxicated in any way or your judgment is impaired whether that is by medical marijuana, alcohol, prescription, or other drugs do not get behind the wheel. With the variety of alternative transportation options, there is zero need for people to drive under the influence.
ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) December 22, 2022
Central Florida Bonding announces its newest blog entitled “Penalties associated with medical marijuana and driving in Florida.” This Orlando, Florida bail bonds agency wants to make sure drivers across the state are aware of the possible penalties for driving under the influence of medical marijuana.
Hadi Khouri, the owner of Central Florida Bonding, states, “Medical marijuana has become legal in Florida for patients suffering from debilitating diseases, but just like with alcohol and other cognitively impairing drugs, the penalties associated with DUI vary based on your number of prior offenses. However, unlike alcohol, there is no designated impairment limit, and marijuana may stay in your system longer than alcohol.”
Penalties for DUIs can include monetary fines, loss of your driver’s license and possible jail time, Khouri stated. In addition, if you are convicted, that will stay on your record for 75 years.
Khouri adds, “The ultimate goal is to prevent injuries, property damage and death. If you are intoxicated in any way or your judgment is impaired whether that is by medical marijuana, alcohol, prescription, or other drugs do not get behind the wheel. With all of the alternative transportation options, including ride share services, friends and family, available to Floridians, there is zero need for people to drive under the influence. Driving under the influence is dangerous, reckless and can have lasting effects on your life and future ability to drive.”
In Florida, the penalties associated with driving while under the influence of marijuana have been increased and in fact, the monetary fines double for each subsequent offense.
