Tennessee has strict DUI penalties including a minimum of 48 hours of jail time, minimum 1 year license suspension and an expensive fine. DUI school is not required for all people charged with a DUI. However, in certain circumstances, alcohol education classes are mandatory.
Marijuana legalization may be sweeping the country, but it’s still illegal in Tennessee. Getting caught with any amount of pot can lead to a criminal record, though a new law makes it less likely that multiple charges of possessing a small amount of marijuana will lead to a felony conviction.
