Meth – Making a DUI Offense Even Worse

drug-crimesThe Serious Consequences of a Methamphetamine DUI

Methamphetamines have been in the news in recent years. It’s a serious problem in Nevada, and that’s why part of NRS 484C.110 addresses methamphetamine DUIs.

If you are convicted under NRS 484C.110, then you may be forced to pay a fine of up to $1,000. You may also have to spend some time in jail. Just as troubling, you may be charged with drug possession.

Methamphetamine is sold under a number of names. Whether it is called crank, crystal, speed or something else is beside the point. The law is very specific. If you have ingested meth “to a degree which renders you incapable of safely driving,” then you may be charged under NRS 484C.110. Law enforcement may perform blood or urine tests to make a case against you. Depending upon the meth content in your blood or urine sample you may be charged for violating this law. It’s important to note that you may be charged even if you’re not technically high. If the test reveals that the meth content in your samples is over the mandated minimum, you will be charged with a DUI.
