Skilled Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Everth Cabrera is a 28 year old professional baseball player now employed by the Baltimore Orioles. Cabrera was born in Nicaragua and has played for several professional Major League Baseball teams. In 2012, Cabrera led the National League in stealing bases. In 2013 Cabrera was selected to the All Star Team.
Skilled Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Cabrera was charged with driving under the influence of marijuana in late 2014. Driving under the influence of drugs is a much harder case for the government, or at least should be, than the case for driving under the influence of alcohol. Alcohol is a much more predictable drug and the level of intoxication moves in a linear fashion. Marijuana is not linear. Instead, it moves in half lives. Marijuana also effects the human body differently than alcohol. A recent NHTSA study has shown that the use of marijuana, and marijuana alone, has a zero per cent (0%) increase in the likelihood of an accident attributable to the use of the substance. That is consistent with the data that suggested at its highest effect level marijuana is the equivalent of a 0.05 g/210L blood alcohol content. A level presently considered presumptively not impaired in Virginia.
Skilled Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: The other problem with driving under the influence of marijuana charges is how do you get probable cause to show the person is under the influence. The roadside gymnastics approved by NHTSA are only vetted for showing a blood alcohol content. That is not the same as a marijuana blood content.
