Bill Heard to Change Marijuana DUI Arrest Testing

By | 2017-03-08T22:51:17+00:00 March 8th, 2017|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Marijuana DUI|Tags: , |

We’ve told you it was coming, and it has. It, in this case, is a bill to change how Nevada marijuana DUI arrests are made, based on how the DUI is calculated. Basically, almost everyone agrees that the way marijuana DUIs are measured in Nevada is worthless. You can be sober, and have been sober for quite some time, and still the test would consider you driving under the influence if you had used marijuana at all recently because the current test measures a level in your blood that does not correspond with impairment. Now, that test is still valid and still how you would be arrested right now. It’s important to remember that the law hasn’t changed yet, so if you’re arrested for a marijuana DUI in Nevada 24hourticketpower.com is the best online resource for you to get legal help with an arrest.

DUI Laws in Las Vegas, The News, and The NFL

By | 2016-07-27T00:20:13+00:00 July 27th, 2016|Categories: DUI, Marijuana DUI|Tags: |

Our attorneys at 24hourticketpower.com follow traffic and DUI laws in the news rather obsessively. Recently that includes a lot of marijuana DUI news in Las Vegas and across the country. There is of course that ballot question coming up in November to fully legalize it for recreational use. It has been legal in Nevada for over a decade for medical use. You can quibble with that figure though because it’s been a whole lot less time that it’s been more than just theoretical in availability. Marijuana is also getting lots of national attention for everything from research availability and data to stories about its way overboard focus in the National Football League. The NFL goes out of its way to test players and sanction and stigmatize them for use of marijuana. Many find this somewhat baffling in an industry so reliant on and in constant use of prescription pain medication that is orders of magnitude more powerful. A prominent writer on CBS Sports has a long piece just recently up on their website calling for an end to marijuana testing, or at least drastically cutting the testing down to a reasonable level, and treating it much less seriously and only [...]

Las Vegas DUI Checkpoint Held On December 16th

A mid-December DUI mitigation event was recently held by Las Vegas police and other local police departments. At the Wednesday, December 16th Las Vegas DUI checkpoint 11 were arrested for driving while intoxicated. Over 4,500 drivers passed through the checkpoint that was held at the intersection of Charleston Blvd and Arlington Ave. 33 people who passed through the DUI checkpoint were tested for Clark County driving while intoxicated. The checkpoint was set up on the eastern side of Las Vegas. Funding for the checkpoint was provided by a grant for Enforcing Laws applying to underage drinking. One of the objectives for the checkpoint was to increase awareness of local police departments’ efforts to curb drunk driving in Southern Nevada. The checkpoint was held from 7:00 P.M. to 3:00 A.M. The area selected for the DUI checkpoint was chosen because the area has a high number of suspected drivers who were operating their vehicles intoxicated and a large number of automobile accidents. Drunk and drugged driving by adults, teenagers and even older Nevadans who hadn’t gotten into accidents were the targets of the drunk driving checkpoint. The Las Vegas police department and other area police agencies are focused on reducing Southern [...]

Las Vegas DUI Trial of Rapper Flavor Flav Scheduled

The trial for a prominent rapper who was arrested in May has been postponed. The postponement for Flavor Flav, a member of the seminal rap group, Public Enemy, has the trail happening to February 8th, 2016. Flavor Flav is a stage name, William Drayton is his real name. Mr. Drayton, 56, was arrested for multiple charges including cocaine possession, speeding and Las Vegas DUI. Nevada Highway Patrol officers had determined that the inductee to the Hall of Fame for Rock and Roll was travelling at 85 miles per hour on the highway that had a speed limit of 65 miles per hour. The rapper was also indicted for other charges in New York. Mr. Drayton has settled those charges this week. At the time of his New York arrest Mr. Drayton was speeding to the funeral of his mother. The rapper accepted a fine of over $3500 and received a sentence of time served. In addition to Flavor Flav’s arrest for Clark County driving while intoxicated, speeding, and cocaine possession, Mr. Drayton was also booked for driving with an open container of alcohol, having marijuana, not having a valid driver’s license and having a fake registration for his automobile. The [...]

Will Uber’s and Lyft’s Return To Nevada Reduce Las Vegas DUI Deaths?

By | 2015-09-25T17:49:23+00:00 September 25th, 2015|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News, Marijuana DUI|Tags: , , |

With Uber and Lyft coming to Las Vegas, expect to see a decline in Las Vegas DUI and other intoxicated while driving charges throughout Southern Nevada. A study by a university in Philadelphia, Temple, showed that when ride sharing companies such as Uber enter a market, DUI deaths fall. The determination was made when studying DUI data in California from 2009 to 2014. Uber’s introduction into a market brought DUI deaths in that city down by anywhere from 3.6% to 5.6%. Since approximately 13,000 people die due to DUIs every year, Uber could have the potential to cause a drop in deaths from driving while intoxicated by 500 people every 12 months. The economic cost of those 500 DUI deaths would also be eliminated, saving the nation a collective $1.3 billion. When the price or the difficulty in registering for or contacting a ride sharing company increased, the decline in deaths stayed consistent. Uber has used this information to help market their service in certain markets. In Toronto, the San Francisco based ride sharing company set up kiosks with breathalyzers in prominent bars and clubs. The heavily Uber branded blood alcohol detection devices implored those who were shown to have [...]

Las Vegas DUI Checkpoint Set For Tuesday July 14th

Las Vegas drivers beware - Las Vegas police have scheduled a DUI checkpoint in Las Vegas for Tuesday night. Police have not released the intersection where the Clark County drunk driving stop will be happening but they have stated that it will occur on Tuesday, July 14. Metro police have provided hints to the intersection where the DUI checkpoint will be placed - the intersection has seen 139 citizen reports of drunk driving and there have been 14 crashes in this area. In addition, one person died in the area in a crash involving an impaired driver in Southern Nevada. Police will not be only looking for individuals behind the wheel who are driving while intoxicated with alcohol, no, in fact, police will be searching for drivers under the influence of drugs like marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and more. The DUI traffic stop will be held from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., Tuesday night to early Wednesday morning. The funding for both overtime hours and consumables for the drunk driving mitigation stop is coming from the Joining Forces Grant Program. The State of Nevada grant program provides funding to Nevada cities and counties to increase the safety of the roads of [...]

Another Supporter of Changes for Pot DUIs in Las Vegas

It seems like not a week can go by without some high profile news, if you’ll forgive the pun, regarding marijuana and laws against driving under the influence in Las Vegas. The big news out this week on Nevada law and marijuana DUI’s is that the district attorney of by far the largest and most important county in the state – us here in Clark County, of course – has come out vocally in favor of overhauling Nevada’s “per se” limit for determining legal impairment for driving high. This is a story that we’ve been following for some time. The debate over marijuana DUIs in Las Vegas and all of Nevada took a more high profile turn this past session of the state’s legislature. Laws were changed to allow for medical marijuana patients to purchase or cultivate marijuana. Though medical marijuana use had been approved by voters more than a decade ago, the state had sat on its hands in terms of setting the rules for it, effectively keeping it outlawed. Now, it seems, some sanity is coming into the debate. Not that we are advocating for marijuana, legalization, people to drive impaired, no. None of that. Of course not. [...]

Marijuana DUI Laws in Nevada Under Scrutiny

By | 2014-08-26T00:42:22+00:00 August 26th, 2014|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Marijuana DUI|Tags: , , , , , , , |

The debate over laws specifying how you may be charged with a DUI for marijuana in Las Vegas continues to, well, not exactly rage, but slow burn (if you’ll pardon us). The issue is one we have written about several times before, and continue to follow as the legal and policy debates move forward. If you have a good handle on this issue already then skip the next paragraph to go straight to the discussion of the recent updates. For those of you who aren’t familiar, the next paragraph is a brief primer. Marijuana laws were just recently changed to allow for the use of marijuana as proscribed by a doctor, and set rules for those who would wish to grow, distribute, sell, or otherwise handle the new industry. The legislator made these changes in the most recent legislative session in the Spring of 2013 (not a typo, it was over a year ago). It wasn’t that they legalized medical marijuana, that had been done over a decade ago by voters in a referendum. What they did is what the legislature should have done just about as long ago, that is, set rules so people could actually obtain legal medicinal [...]
