DUI cases involving drugs are handled slightly differently than those involving alcohol, and your attorney should be experienced in dealing with DUI of drugs cases in particular. For example, a breath test will not be administered for a DUID case. A blood or urine test will most likely be done to determine whether a controlled substance is present in your system. Field sobriety tests will play a more important role, as the prosecution will need to prove that your normal abilities were impaired due to drug use.
