Law enforcement officials in Colleyville can arrest you for driving while intoxicated (DWI) if they suspect you are under the influence of marijuana while driving a motor vehicle.

Client Testimonials for the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg
The wife of a former client explains the type of representation you can expect when you hire a DWI marijuana lawyer from our team to lead your defense in Colleyville:
- “My husband was taken to jail after a field sobriety test, and I had to get an Uber with threats of being arrested myself. After I bailed him out, we asked around about the best DWI attorneys in Dallas, and Randall’s name kept coming up. So we went with him. He committed the arresting officer to giving his version of the arrest, and it didn’t match the evidence and couldn’t stand up in court. We were so relieved to have the case thrown out and to put it all behind us. And we’re happy to leave a good review.” – Sarah

Legal and Non-Legal Consequences of a DWI Marijuana Conviction in Colleyville
If a law enforcement officer determines you were impaired by marijuana while driving a motor vehicle, they can charge you with driving while intoxicated.
Texas Penal Code Title 10 § 49.01 allows for a DWI charge resulting from alleged marijuana use, as the statute defines “intoxicated” as “not having the normal use of mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of those substances, or any other substance into the body.”
The Texas Department of Transportation (TDOT) explains that should a prosecutor succeed in convicting you of DWI, you face:
- For a first DWI offense: A fine of up to $2,000, between 3 and 180 days in jail, and license suspension for up to one year.
- For a second DWI offense: A fine of up to $4,000, between 1 month and 1 year in jail, and license suspension for up to 2 years.
- For a third DWI offense: A fine of up to $10,000, between 2 and 10 years in prison, and license suspension for up to 2 years.
You may face additional penalties if you had marijuana in your possession at the time of arrest or stand accused of other aggravating factors. In addition to the legal penalties you face, a DWI conviction can:
- Get you fired
- Cause custody issues
- Make you a lesser candidate for housing and employment
- Diminish your quality of life
There is no way of telling exactly how costly a DWI conviction will be, as its impact can reach far and wide throughout your life. It is in your interests to get the strongest defense you possibly can.
