Arizona prosecutor applauds court ruling in medical pot DUI case

PHOENIX — Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery is happy about an appeals court ruling that says medical marijuana users can still be prosecuted for driving under the influence in Arizona.

The case involved a man who carries a medical marijuana card and was arrested for DUI in 2011. He was acquitted of that charge but convicted on a DUI law that bars people from driving while having a prohibited drug or its compound in their system.

The man claimed Arizona’s 2010 medical marijuana law made authorized users immune from prosecution. The court said no.
