Posted by | DWI | No Comments

When you are suspected of drunk driving, police in Austin and throughout Texas must still respect your constitutional rights. This includes the right to be free from any unreasonable search of your person. A search is considered unreasonable if law enforcement does not first obtain a warrant or establish there is some “exigent” or emergency circumstances that excuses the lack of such a warrant. Any evidence obtained by the police in violation of these requirements cannot be used against you at trial.

Determining whether a driver is under the influence (DUI) of marijuana has long been an issue for law enforcement officers in the state of Texas. Unlike alcohol, marijuana intoxication is often difficult to detect and cannot be accurately measured through a roadside test like a breathalyzer. As a result, DWI convictions based on marijuana were often difficult to obtain. This may soon be changing, however, as CBS News reported late last year that a California based company has created a marijuana breathalyzer that will be able to measure that amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in a person’s breath. These devices are being developed largely in response to the perception of an increased problem with stoned drivers in states like Colorado and Washington that have legalized the recreational use of marijuana.
