Disputing Notice of Intent to Prohibit and Notice of Prohibition Letters

Receiving a Notice of Intent to Prohibit can be a stressful experience. But these letters often take people by surprise. Often, that should not be the case.

Some cases involve only violation tickets for having cannabis in a vehicle, or 24 hour prohibitions for drugs.
 
Despite the fanfare and attention, the reality is this: the battle for sensible cannabis-impaired driving laws will not be won in a dispute of a 24 Hour Prohibition for drugs.
