DUI on Drugs Penalties
According to Virginia law, any substance that can impair an individual’s ability to drive can be considered a drug. If you are driving impaired, and chemical testing indicates drugs present in your system, you could be charged with a DUI. Whether you under the influence of marijuana, cocaine, prescription pills, or even over-the-counter medication, you may be charged with DUI of drugs.
The first offense is considered a Class 1 misdemeanor, which is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of one year, a fine of up to $2,500, and license suspension for one year. Offenders with previous DUI conviction may receive additional penalties.
