Marijuana legalization brings warnings about impaired driving

According to safety officials from several U.S. transportation agencies, regulators should do more to mitigate the dangers of more permissive drug use in many states throughout the country. While marijuana remains illegal in Texas, officials fear that greater use of pot in places like California and Colorado will increase incidents of impaired driving. The National Transportation Safety Board is advocating that police use devices to test drug impairment.

How Texas punishes DWI offenses

The state of Texas has severe penalties for those the courts convict of driving while intoxicated. These vary depending on a range of factors, including whether or not it is your first offense, as well as the amount of alcohol in your system at the time of arrest.

An overview of DWI law in Texas

Texas motorists who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol could be charged with DWI. There may also be a penalty for those who fail to submit to a breath test when asked by authorities to take one. The type of penalties a person may face for a DWI conviction depend on a person's prior record and circumstances specific to the case. For instance, a charge may be more serious if a child is in the car with an impaired driver.


  1. When I got myself into a big mess, Mr. Ross helped me get an amazing deal and now only a few years later I have my life back. He's very professional and gets to know his clients because he genuinely cares. And his staff keep the same level of professionalism. Very highly recommend!

  2. John "Tony" Ross Jr. is hands down the go to man if you need a juvenile defense attorney. He is professional but yet treats you like a friend. Tony really listened to our concerns. He worked hard to get us just about everything we could have hoped for and the charges significantly lessened. He went above and beyond to make sure my family member was treated fairly and with dignity. If you have a child or grandchild in trouble with the law, don't shop around. Call John "Tony" Ross Jr.

  3. Hands down the best attorney in this area! Tony went above and far beyond what we could have expected. If you are in need of legal assistance, he is definitely the way to go.

  4. Tony Ross is excellent, and was a very educated expert in having my case examined and reviewed to get it downgraded...the charge downgraded from a DWI to an obstruction of a highway passage because of the talented Mr. Anthony "Tony" Ross, and Ross Law Offices, P.C.! I was very pleased to not have the original charge of a DWI on record and satisfied of the result of no DWI. Would highly recommend Ross Law Offices, P.C.! Good luck, but who needs luck with Tony Ross!

  5. Mr. Tony Ross is an amazing attorney. My son made some poor choices and needed legal assistance. Mr. Ross was able to help us keep him out of jail and the charges off his record. We are forever grateful that our son has a second chance!
