Central Florida Bonding announces their newest article entitled “Medical Marijuana and Driving in Florida.” This Orlando, Florida bail bonds agency encourages everyone to be aware of the implications that can occur when mixing medical marijuana and driving on the Florida roadways.
Hadi Khouri, owner of Central Florida Bonding, states, “The use of medical marijuana by patients has become increasingly popular in recent years. Smoking or consuming marijuana will impair motor skills and under Florida law, marijuana is still a controlled substance, which means using it and getting behind the wheel is still illegal and can result in a Driving Under the Influence arrest with penalties that are just as severe as if you were arrested for a DUI involving alcohol.”
It’s true that driving under the influence of marijuana is illegal in every state, Khouri stated. In Florida one can have medical marijuana in their vehicle, however, both drivers and passengers must never use marijuana in a vehicle, even if a person has obtained it using a physician's prescription. Lawmakers advise not driving if one has smoked Marijuana Flower, vaped Marijuana Concentrates, administered THC Tincture, or taken marijuana in any other form, such as in an edible. Non-psychoactive CBD products are safe to take if they contain 0.3 percent THC or less.
In their newest article Central Florida Bonding offers answers to additional frequently asked questions regarding medical marijuana and driving, some of them include:
Can I still get pulled over?
If you’re caught driving under the influence of any drug, you will likely face consequences. In addition to being charged with DUI, you could also face penalties for possession of drugs and paraphernalia.
Is consuming medical marijuana in public still illegal?
Using medical marijuana in public is against the law. Do not use medical marijuana in your car, even if it is parked. It is also illegal for passengers to use medical marijuana in a moving vehicle.
Will my insurance rates go up?

Khouri adds, “While some parts of the law do need to catch up to the use of medical marijuana, other parts are quite clear. First and foremost, 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 of an automobile. Second, you should never exceed your medical marijuana limit.”
