A Placerville man was recently vindicated in court over the suspension of his driver's license for having marijuana in the car with him while he was driving from Placerville to Washington. The man was pulled over by the CHP and the officer saw a pipe and a bag of the drug on the seat next to the Placerville man who has a legal permit to smoke marijuana for medicinal purposes. The officer confiscated the drug and the pipe and made the man perform a field sobriety test, which he passed. The man's license was suspended and he fought the DMV in administrative proceedings for nine months before he was allowed to have his license back. Although he was never cited for driving under the influence, a charge appeared on his driving record, which had to be erased by the DMV.
