I will be relying on science a great deal. There is no science that shows what level of any controlled substance, or drugs causes’ intoxication. Again, there is a scientific consensus that different drugs have different effects on different people. Science is important in defending DWI drug cases, and it is important to be able to cross-examine state’s scientists, and understand the science, and have the scientist to admit favorable things for the defense. It is important to know scientists who can testify for the defense as experts, and know what evidence can be used to help defend a client.
It is important to understand the signs of metabolism, and the different metabolites, and that metabolites may be active, or inactive. It is important to know the science of blood testing, and how to challenge blood test, and how to challenge the gas chromatographs. It is important to know the signs, and the lack thereof in the drug recognition expert’s evaluations. Therefore, while prosecution’s use science to prosecute somebody for a DWI with drugs, it is imperative that the defense attorney be well versed in all that science as well, and to be able to use the science to defend their client.
