Can you get a DUI for driving high in New Jersey?

I’m never paranoid about being high until I start driving—and then I freak out. What happens if you get caught driving while high in New Jersey?

You can get a Marijuana DUI for driving high in New Jersey, even though the state recently decriminalized marijuana use.
Marijuana is treated just like any other mind-altering drug when it comes to driving under the influence. This means that driving high can have consequences including:
  • Mandatory license suspension
  • Jail time
  • Substantial fines
DUIs and other traffic tickets can also increase your car insurance rates. To make sure you’re still getting the best deal, check out the Jerr​​y app. Jerry collects quotes for you, so all you have to do is fill out your information and choose the policy that’s best for you.
