OUI & MARIJUANA LAWS IN MAINE

In Maine, the law prohibiting “operating under the influence” is written down at Maine Revised Statute 29-A §2411. This law penalizes anyone who “operates a motor vehicle” while either:

  • Under the influence of intoxicants; or
  • Having a blood alcohol content (BAC) at or above the legal limit of 0.08%.

The first possibility makes OUI law broad enough to include people who are not drunk, but who are feeling the effects of any intoxicating substance. This includes:

  • Illegal drugs, like heroin, cocaine, LSD, or ecstasy;
  • Semi-illegal drugs, like marijuana;
  • Prescription drugs like sleeping pills;
  • Over-the-counter medication, like allergy pills that can cause drowsiness; or even
  • Caffeine.
