Question: Can you talk about driving under the influence of a controlled substance in Wisconsin?

Answer: Driving while under the influence of a controlled substance is a big new area for prosecution. I’ve trained other lawyers in-state and nationally at seminars on how to defend these cases. If a controlled substance or substances are prescription drugs, these cases are really hard to prove for the prosecution, as no one except the individual and his or her own doctor can say what the right quantity of medication is and whether any alcohol can be consumed while using it. I’ve seen cases where officers arrest people for having their prescription drugs in their system, when these people would be seriously impaired if they didn’t take their medication.
