Question: What kind of drugs are you seeing in Wisconsin OWI precription drug cases?

Answer: The kinds of drugs we see in prescription drug prosecutions essentially are those, as I call them, the “pam” group—like Lorazepam, things like that, and also things like Ambien. We’re seeing a real increase in, essentially, OWI prosecution, operating while under the influence of a controlled substance, in those two areas. And, again, it is imperative that we get to work with your doctor and take a look at your prescription so we can see what the best defenses to those charges are. What might be a reasonable level of the drug in one person may not be reasonable in another person. These cases are very tough for the prosecution to prove.
