Prescription Drug DUI Charges in Arizona

There are two different misdemeanor prescription drug DUI charges in Apache Junction, Arizona. The first is driving with an illegal drug in one’s body. This means that it is illegal to drive with any type of drug. This is a strict liability crime, meaning that it doesn’t matter if someone was impaired or not, but rather, that they had a drug in their system at all. The second charge is known as Impairment to the Slightest Degree. This makes it illegal to drive while impaired by drugs or alcohol or a combination. The state has a zero tolerance DUI charge, which prohibits driving under the influence in any way.
