Medical marijuana users can face DUI charges even if they are unimpaired

Arizona medical marijuana users can face jail time or have their licenses suspended for driving with cannabis in their system even if they are not impaired, according to a series of court decisions including a new one from the state Court of Appeals.

The ruling stems from a case involving Travis Lance Darrah, a medical marijuana cardholder, who was pulled over in 2011 and charged with DUI.

The Mesa jury acquitted Darrah of DUI but found him guilty of a misdemeanor charge of driving with an illegal substance in his system.
