DUI charges come under several different headings. These different classifications help the court and system identify the type of charges and circumstances that lead to the charge. A Physical Control Arrest includes certain levels of alcohol blood content or THC concentrations, as well as other singular or combined intoxication while driving a vehicle. Operating a boat while under the influence is also a charge, and is referred to as a BUI. Minors may also be charged if they are under the age of 21 and found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Reckless Driving charges are often found to be in connection with a DUI, and may sometimes be the kind of charge that is made as a reduced version of a DUI charge. The same goes for Negligent Driving 1 charge, which is often a charge resulting from a lawyer negotiating on behalf of a client with a DUI charge.
Changes to the law in 2012 made marijuana legal, and also outlined the ability to test and prosecute those with impaired levels of THC consumption.
