Cincinnati, OH asked in DUI / DWI and Cannabis & Marijuana Law for Indiana

Q: I had a wreck in November due to a seizure. I was put in the ambulance and refused treatment

Because I knew I had a seizure.A deputy then put me in cuffs and took me to the hospital to see if a doctor could tell if I had a seizure the dr could not verify if I had one then the officer had me do blood test. I just received papers saying I have to go to court in March for a class c misdemeanor operating a vehicle under a controlled substance. I do smoke marijuana but did not that day. So what can I do so I don’t get in trouble??

A: You should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney and do not talk to anyone about this other than your attorney. At this point it is illegal to have marijuana metabolite in your body, however, there is legislation that may change that in Indiana.
