    I had a friend that this happened to. He had no weed in the car but was under the influence of it. Somehow the cop suspected this, and had him take a drug test (I’m not sure if he was arrested first or what.) My friend was on probation for a prior DUI (alcohol), and because he tested positive for THC, he got a second DUI. I know he spent some time in jail… I’m not sure how long on that either. But he described it just as if he’d gotten a second alcohol DUI.

    Same as an alcohol DUI…the law makes no distinction.

    The car can be searched. The people in it might be searched. The driver might be evaluated for DUI, depending on the circumstances.
