DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.
The use of any drug – marijuana, prescription, over the counter, illegal or illicit – that impairs your ability to drive safely is illegal.
- Medicine taken together or in combination with alcohol or other drugs increases impairment.
- Do your research: read the warning label and know the effects of any drug you use.
- Most drugs taken for colds, allergy, muscle or nerve relaxers may make you drowsy.
- Any drug that “may cause drowsiness or dizziness” or with a “do not operate heavy machinery” warning label is one you should not take before driving.
