Marijuana Paraphernalia Seen During A Traffic Stop

One of the most important DUI drug cases in the State of Georgia over the last 20 years was Love v. State, heard in 1999. The Georgia Supreme Court held that a person could legally use marijuana in another country and still be convicted of DUI Drugs in Georgia if any trace of weed was found in his or her bloodstream after being pulled over for suspected drugged driving. This led to the Georgia legislature changing the law and rewriting OCGA 40-6-391 (a) (6).

Today, states like Colorado and Washington—along with the nation’s capital, Washington DC—have passed more liberal marijuana laws for personal users that may permit the same type of wrongful conviction for people flying back to Georgia after legally using marijuana in those states. Plus, medical marijuana is being prescribed in many jurisdictions, including Georgia, and these new laws may lead to wrongful marijuana DUI convictions of people who have minute traces of weed in their system.
