I enjoy the occasional joint of marijuana here and there. I have a friend who was arrested for a DWAI - drugs when he was high driving and they urine tested him. I do not drive high, I would be too worried about something happening. I am however worried that if I am legitimately tired or suffering from allergies and the officer believes I am high. Can he then give me a urine test, which would show cannabis in your system up to 30 days? Can they actually arrest you and charge you with this based on your urine? How can they prove it was in your system at the time of driving?

I was charged with DUI per se and DUI Common Law; however, since my BAC was a .2 I'm assuming the DA will also charge me with aggravated DUI. Is this possible post-arraignment? If so, why wasn't this an original charge?
Yes, the DA can add charges after arraignment. It is odd that they did not originally charge you with the aggravated...
