Urine chemical tests for DWAI/DWI
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?

I had my CDL license suspended for 18mo after receiving a dWAI in ny in my personal car. After 1 yr can I get a hardship? Forcdl

My ex has been convicted and sentenced for DWI. She has lost her license for 6 month.
What effect does this have on my visitation, since our agreement says that we each drive 1 way when I have the children for the weekend. She lives 45 minutes away from me. Can I ask for reimbursement for the extra money I would have to spend on gas if I drive both ways? Or is she required to pay for a cab?
