Convicted of a Utah Marijuana Crime – Lose Your Driver License

Protect Yourself Against Marijuana Charges by Calling Salcido Law Firm

One of the worst laws on the books in Utah is the law that requires the Driver’s License Division to suspend your license for six months if you are convicted of possession of marijuana or possession of paraphernalia.

This law makes absolutely not sense.  Its ramifications are extant.  It puts people out of work and makes more people reliant on the government.  In Utah we do not have the public transportation that cities like New York and San Francisco have.  You must have a car in Utah to be able to do anything including to simply go to work and make a living.

Even worse, Utah does not even have an exception for work driving permits.  If you lose your license you lose your license for everything.  Many people have lost their jobs because they have been convicted of having marijuana and as a result could not drive for six months.  It is a draconian law and must be changed.  Contact your state legislature and demand that this law be changed.  There is simply no reason why someone who is smoking pot in their backyard not bothering anybody should lose their license and their ability to provide for himself and his family.
