Yes. In Georgia, drivers who are driving while under the influence of illegal drugs may be charged with DUI just as drivers who are under the influence of alcohol. In both instances, at the time of the crash, the other driver was under the influence. When a driver has been drinking, a BAC greater than .08 is considered negligent. There is no set limit for the blood concentration of illegal drugs. However, evidence of the use of illegal drug is admissible because it has an effect on a person’s ability to operate a motor vehicle.
