Herbal Supplements and DWI

After using an herbal supplement for an at-home treatment or remedy, a person may find themselves pulled over for driving while intoxicated. This is because these supplements can affect their ability to safely control a motor vehicle. However, in some cases, a police officer may wrongfully arrest an individual who still can maintain a safe level of control over their vehicle.

If you believe that you have been mistakenly charged with driving while intoxicated, you have the option to fight back. To discuss your legal rights if you have charged with DWI due to herbal ingredient use, contact Raleigh DWI attorney Jim Black at 919-600-4609 today.

Effects of Herbal Ingredients

A person using an herbal supplement can be considered intoxicated in some cases because of the somewhat unclear legal definition of intoxication. For substances that are not alcohol, there is no exact figure to determine intoxication. Instead, an officer can arbitrarily decide whether they want to make an arrest for DWI if an intoxicating substance is affecting that individual.

The following effects may be observed in individuals who are using herbal ingredients:

  • Loss of focus
  • Loss of muscle strength
  • Excessive relaxation
  • Falling asleep while driving
  • Emotional swings

These supplements can have a significant impact on a person’s driving abilities, leading some police officers to pursue arrests against affected individuals.
