Georgia law prohibits individuals from consuming any substance that may negatively impact their ability to drive safely. If you have been arrested in Henry County and charged with DUI due to drug intoxication, it is critical that you contact a good Henry County DUI attorney. The states definition of drugs includes both recreation and pharmaceutical drugs. An officer can pull you over if he or she observes any suspicious behavior and if the officer believes you are under the influence of drugs you will be arrested, charged, and required to take a blood or urine test. If you refuse this test your license can be suspended for at least 1 year. The fact that the drug in your system is prescription means nothing if the officer believes that it has impaired your driving in any way, you can still be charged with a DUI.
