Driving Under the Influence of Drugs
Pursuant to Section 49.01 of the Texas Penal Code, legally intoxicated means “not having the normal use of mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, controlled substance, drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of these substances or any other substance in the body”. Most people understand that drinking and driving is illegal. However, some are not so aware of the fact that driving with drugs in their system can also lead to a charge of DWI. Drugged driving means driving a vehicle under the influence of drugs without prescription, prescription drugs or illegal drugs, this could also result from mixing alcohol and medications or drugs.
This is not an uncommon event. Studies by the Administration of Mental Health and Substance Abuse show that approximately 10 million people in America are driving under the influence of drugs each year; 18% of drivers are killed on the roads driving with prescription drugs or illegal drugs in their systems. What makes this so dangerous is that each individual reacts differently to each drug and is difficult to predict how severe the damage they may cause.
