The legal limit for marijuana DUIs is 5 nanograms for blood THC content. However, you can still be charged with DUI even if you are below these limits if the King County Prosecution can show that you were “affected” or “impaired” by any amount of alcohol, drugs, or both. You can also be convicted of “physical control of vehicle while intoxicated,” even if you aren’t actually driving the vehicle in Evergreen or King County at the time of your arrest.
WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING
Driver License Suspension Telephone Hearings Information
(For DUI Cases Only)
Your Department of Licensing DUI driver license suspension case will not be heard in King County court. Rather it will be heard entirely in a telephone conference call by a Department of Licensing (DOL) Hearing officer appointed to your DUI license suspension case. This DOL telephone hearing will most likely be planned inside 60 days of your DUI arrest date. The selected DOL Hearing officer will get in touch with you and your lawyer on your lawyer's office speaker telephone ... or on your own residence or cell phone in case you fail to get a DUI lawyer.
