OWI by Medications or Illegal Drugs
It is a crime in Iowa to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs. It makes no difference if the drug is illegal or a doctor prescribed medication; if your ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired by the drug, you can be charged with Operating While Intoxicated in Iowa.
Drugs include marijuana, cocaine, opiates, methamphetamine and many other drugs. They can include over-the counter medications. If the drug had an effect on you so as to interfere with your ability to operate a motor vehicle, you can be charged. Field sobriety tests will play an important role in determining whether a jury might convict you.
