Hire a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney.
Drug related DUI's are more difficult for the DA to prosecute because there are no set standards regarding the level of the MJ in your system for a presumption that you were under the influence unlike alcohol related DUI's (.08).
Alison Lee Bermant agrees with this answer
A: I agree with Mr. Karas's answer, I would only add to be sure to hire a skilled lawyer in the area where your arrest occurred who is familiar with the workings of the court to advise you on the procedures in the jurisdiction where you are being prosecuted.
