Remember, driving under the influence includes more than just alcohol. You can also be charged for driving under the influence of narcotics, other illicit drugs, solvents, medications you weren’t prescribed, or even medications that were prescribed to you.
You should never drive under the influence of anything that could impair you. Not only could you be arrested, but you’re putting yourself and others at risk.
