“17 of the 22 drivers arrested for DUI this weekend were impaired due to drugs,” said Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb. “It’s not just alcohol we’re dealing with anymore. People need to learn that drugs, even if you have a medical marijuana card, will impair your judgment and you will be arrested.”

The Pinal County DUI Task Force is made possible with funding from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. PCSO would like to thank Director Alberto Gutier and everyone at GOHS for their continued support of traffic enforcement operations in Pinal County.
