I’m sorry to hear that you’re dealing with this! Yes, your dad can get charged with a DUI if he’s caught driving high in Vermont. DUI stands for Driving Under the Influence, which means you can be charged for being under the influence of any number of substances.
If your dad isn’t phased by the possibility of a DUI, remind him that he could lose his license for driving while high. He is also putting himself and other drivers on the road in danger by driving while impaired!
