Driving under the influence of marijuana: While certain laws have relaxed in regards to the use of marijuana, it is still illegal to drive while under its influence.
Loss of commercial driver’s license issues: If you have a commercial drivers license, you can receive a DWI for having a BAC of only .04 percent.

What Are The Benefits of Retaining a DWI Lawyer?
Having an experienced DWI Attorney for your criminal defense case is essential for best results. A blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher for adults or 0.02% for those under 21 can result in a DWI conviction.
If convicted of a NY DWI, you may have your license revoked or suspended, face high fines and in some circumstances jail or prison time.
A conviction remains on your driver’s record and can restrict your freedom to drive in New York State or to Canada for up to ten years.
A DWI conviction will jeopardize your freedom to drive and may even result in jail time.
DWI is generally a misdemeanor, however, a second or third offense or a DWI with a child under 15 in the vehicle may be prosecuted as a felony charge, bringing your even more severe consequences and up to thousands of dollars in fines.
You may be restricted to a conditional driver’s license and/or subject to substance abuse treatment.
