Did you know that you could get a DWI if you are taking prescription medications.
Yes, that is because of the DWI statute and it’s wording. The statute reads
(A) not having the normal use of mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of those substances, or any other substance into the body; or
(B) having an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more.
So it is not just alcohol that causes someone to get a DWI, it can be marijuana because it can impair the “normal use of mental or physical faculties.”
If you are in Corpus Christi and have received a DWI but weren’t drinking but had prescription drugs in your system call our law firm 361-792-3811.
