There are a number of drugs that can cause symptoms that impair a person's ability to safely operate a vehicle. Under Nevada law, anyone who operates a vehicle while under the influence of a drug, even a drug that was prescribed be a doctor, can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) if it impairs their ability to do so safely.
If you are convicted of DUI for prescription drug use or the use of any other type of drug, you can face all of the same penalties as a person who was driving under the influence of alcohol. In addition, you could face additional penalties if you were under the influence of an illegal drug. There are serious consequences in drug-related DUI cases, and representation from a skilled defense attorney is essential.
