Can I Be Charged With DWI In New Jersey If The Blood Test Revealed Marijuana In My System, But I Wasn’t Impaired At The Time Of The Stop?

Yes, you can be charged with DWI if you were driving erratically and displayed evidence of intoxication, in the opinion of the arresting officer.

You can even be convicted based on police testimony, and if there is additional evidence of marijuana in your system, then you’ll have a hard time convincing a judge that the cop was simply mistaken and you were sober.

There are defenses that go deeper than that, including questioning the legality of the stop and the terms under which you submitted to a blood test.

If coercive tactics were used, you may have grounds to have the blood evidence disqualified.

There are additional plans of attack against DWI when marijuana is suspected as well. Call attorney Matthew Reisig today at 732-625-9660 for a free consultation.
