A well-known national drugstore chain offers a discount on a h0me drug test for marijuana or cocaine. I am not implying anything relating to the quality or reliability of these products. And this isn’t legal advice. I believe that at-home medical tests can save money, save time, and perhaps offer some peace of mind.
But speaking as an experienced attorney who deals daily with DUI legal matters, I would pose this hypothetical question to anyone who might find themselves impaired even to the slightest degree by drugs and who might be considering getting behind the wheel of a vehicle: would you wager your future on a home drug test?
Should you be stopped by law enforcement on the suspicion of DUI, it is not likely that your home test results will be a significant factor in how your case proceeds. There will be other legally mandated medically-supervised tests, such as marijuana or cocaine metabolite tests, that most likely will supersede your home results. In addition, there are the laws, and the people who enforce those laws, putting your actions to the test, so to speak. They will also impact the decisions regarding your future, should DUI charges proceed to conviction.
I believe that anyone facing a situation involving drugged driving or DUI-related issues should seek the advice of a knowledgeable DUI attorney.
