I am Mark Morasch, a Houston criminal defense lawyer and my practice is devoted to defending people charged with Possession of Marijuana (POM), Possession of Controlled Substances (PCS), and Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).
With the beginning of the Holiday Season look for an increase in the number of arrests for Driving While Intoxicated, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession of a Controlled Substance due to a zero tolerance program targeting impaired drivers. Beginning as early as Halloween and continuing through Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve you will see an increase in police activity on the streets of Houston. "No Refusal" means that prosecutors and judges will be working around the clock with the police to secure search warrants in order to seize blood samples from those arrested for DWI. Once a search warrant is signed by a judge, a police officer can take your blood with or without your permission.
