The laws regarding Cannabidiol (CBD) in conjunction with driving in Pennsylvania are complex. For individuals who have taken CBD and are behind the wheel, the fear of getting a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) charge is palpable. The core of the concern stems from the fact that while CBD is a non-psychoactive compound and legal in Pennsylvania, its interaction with driving laws is not explicitly defined. It is reassuring to know that under Pennsylvania law, consuming legal CBD products, which contain less than 0.3% THC (the psychoactive component in cannabis), should not lead to a DUI charge as it does not impair the driver’s ability.

The team at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg & Gifford, P.C., is here to provide clarity on this nuanced subject and support you through any legal challenges you may encounter in this regard. With over 65 years of experience, we are well-equipped to navigate the complexities of Pennsylvania’s DUI laws as they relate to CBD consumption.

Understanding CBD’s Legal Status and Its Intersection With DUI

In Pennsylvania, the law is clear that CBD products with less than 0.3% THC are legal. However, when it comes to DUI laws, the focus is primarily on substances that impair the driver’s ability, which legal CBD does not do. The key points to consider are:

  • Legal CBD’s non-psychoactive nature
  • Law enforcement’s methodology for determining impairment
  • The differentiation between legal CBD and other controlled substances

Nevertheless, it is a crime to drive with more than 1 nanogram/milliliter of THC or cannabis metabolites in your system in Pennsylvania.

Being well-versed in the legal landscape surrounding CBD and DUI in Pennsylvania is crucial to dispel fears and ensure you are on the right side of the law while driving after consuming CBD.
