The consequences for a drug DUI are the same as those of an alcohol DUI. However, drug DUIs are much harder to prove, because there isn't a specific concentration that the state deems as impairment. With that said, you need to hire a DUI specialist, because by yourself the prosecutor simply won't budge.

In MN you would be charged with a 4th Degree DUI offense and possession unless you have any aggravating circumstances to your case. This is a serious matter and you should seek representation asap. The max penalty for your case is 90 days in jail and/or a $1000 fine. Best of luck.

For your sake, please engage an attorney immediately to try to mitigate the damages which will result from your actions. If you are found guilty you will have a drug DUI and a drug possession charge on your permanent record. The driving charge is not expendable and will appear forever on the official record, and on the publicly available record for at least 10 years. The results which this will have on your future options is very significant. It is not just the immediate fines, costs, potential incarceration which is at stake.
