DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF HEROIN OR MORPHINE - DUI HEROIN OR MORPHINE
Heroin, like methamphetamine, is fast-becoming the country’s most abused illicit narcotic now that marijuana has been largely decriminalized and even legalized in some states, such as the case in California. With an increase in users, comes an increase in the number of DUI Heroin charges by law enforcement.
Morphine and heroin are both white, crystalline powders. Illicit heroin may vary in color from white to dark brown due to impurities, or may appear as a black tar-like material, which is commonly referred to as “black tar” heroin, the type of heroin that is more commonly found in California.
The “draw” for most heroin users is the impossible attainment of the feeling they felt the first time that they consumed heroin. The drug is usually characterized by an intense surge of euphoria, commonly referred to as a “rush”, which is accompanied by a warm flushing of the skin, dry mouth, and heavy extremities. The user then alternates between a wakeful and drowsy state, which is commonly referred to as being “on the nod”. Heroin is one of the most addictive drugs in the world and has had devastating impacts on the lives of users’ due to the constant search for that feeling of complete and utter euphoria.
When consumed, one would certainly be ill-advised to drive; however, some users do and are often then stopped and detained for Driving Under the Influence of Heroin (DUI Heroin) or Morphine (DUI Morphine).

If you were arrested for DUI Heroin or DUI Morphine, or any drug and/or combination of drugs, even drugs and alcohol, you need a DUI Defense Attorney who understands the toxicological aspects of a DUI Heroin defense. It is not enough to know and understand the field sobriety tests; the DUI Heroin Defense Attorney must also understand the forensic toxicology and what it does to the user's body and the objective signs of intoxication that an officer will be seeking to prove that he or she observed as part of the DUI Heroin Investigation.
