Driving Under the Influence of Legal Drugs

Most people are aware that it is both unsafe and highly illegal to drive under the influence of illegal narcotics like marijuana, heroin, cocaine, and other hard drugs, but did you know that certain legal and widely available medicines can hinder your ability to drive?

We’ve handled cases involving:

  • Antidepressants
  • Decongestants
  • Sedatives and sleeping pills
  • Pain medications
  • Antihistamines
  • Cough medicines

Although they are legal, these medications can cause drowsiness and other forms of impairment. There are plenty of defenses that may apply to these types of cases, however, so it is important to discuss the details of your case with an experienced attorney. Our Cincinnati OVI defense lawyers will determine the best defense option for you and fight for a reduction or dismissal of your DUID charges.

Penalties for Drugged Driving in Ohio

A conviction for driving under the influence of drugs comes with serious penalties in Ohio. These include up to 180 days in jail, a fine of up to $1,075, mandatory enrollment in a drug and alcohol awareness program, a driver’s license suspension, drug testing, and more for a first offense. Penalties for subsequent offenses are even more harshly punished.
