Driving Under the Influence

It’s illegal everywhere in the U.S. to drive under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, opioids, methamphetamines, or any potentially impairing drug. This includes prescribed and over-the-counter medications. Even in states where marijuana laws have changed, it’s still illegal to drive under the influence of that drug.

Give yourself (and others) the gift of sober driving.
