The first, and unexpected, prong of the legal consequences is an administrative hearing about your driver’s license. An “administrative” hearing is a hearing handled by a bureaucratic department, in this case the Department of Licensing, totally outside of the court system. This department can revoke your license even if you have not yet been found guilty in a criminal court and even if there is little or no evidence against you. You are allowed a hearing to argue your case, and without a marijuana DUI lawyer many accused drivers lose their license without ever setting foot in a courtroom.
The other prong is of course the legal case itself. A marijuana DUI is a criminal charge with far-reaching implications. Again, a drug DUI is considered the same as an alcohol DUI in Washington and that means that a host of special penalties are available for the court to throw at you. Once again there is a threat of revoking or suspending your license; beyond that however are jail time, high fines, court-mandated rehabilitation or driver safety courses, and even punishments that make little sense except as social stigma. “Drunk” drivers are ostracized in our society and the court will not hesitate to throw the book at you. As a complete aside, check out the website's incredibly detailed Marijuana Definitions and Glossary.
