With the rise of decriminalization and legalization of Marijuana it is important to remember that it is still illegal to drive while impaired. In Nevada, the statute which covers Driving Under the Influence of marijuana is NRS484C.110.
Definition of Nevada DUI Marijuana – NRS 484C.110
- The driver has ingested marijuana “to a degree which renders the driver incapable of safely driving or exercising actual physical control of a vehicle,” or
- The driver’s blood contains 2 nanograms per ml. of marijuana or 5 nanograms per ml. of marijuana metabolite, or
- The driver’s urine contains 10 nanograms per ml. of marijuana or 15 nanograms per ml. of marijuana metabolite.
What this means, is that a driver does not necessarily have to be “high” to get arrested for a DUI in Nevada. If the driver’s blood or urine contains the minimum amount listed above, this statute deems the driver to be “Driving Under the Influence.”
