Portland man's DUI overturned due to improper search and seizure

When a driver is stopped by authorities, they should be aware of their rights and what forms of questioning and tests they could be asked to comply with. If an officer suspects that a driver is under the influence of alcohol, the driver could face a DUI if the officer establishes the proper evidence to place them under arrest. If authorities do not properly carryout the procedures of a DUI stop or a drunk driving arrest, the driver could use this evidence in their defense against the pending charges.

Furthermore, the federal government still considers marijuana to be an illegal substance.
