            In Minnesota we have both. Well...the terms are used interchangeably but one is a lesser offense than the other. [here comes my yearly dram shop information they make me test on] DUI is up to .07. (and above I believe .03) DWI is .08 and above.

              I think DUIs are also given for driving while on Percocet, and things like that, around here.

                I believe you are correct. DUI is also for non-alcohol related impairment.

                  • Ah, Michigan part 2:

                    The city of Holland has a terrible affordable housing problem. To help combat the problem, the City is moving to allow two family housing in several neighborhoods. The rich people of the city are like "HOW DARE YOU!" This is the same city who showed up in droves to try and prevent my community from receiving fair and equal employment housing practices, so really, I am not surprised.

                          The law in Minnesota is this.

                          It is illegal to operate or be in control of a motor vehicle if you are:

                          a) under the influence of alcohol;
                          b) under the influence of a "controlled substance;"
                          c) under the influence of an "intoxicating substance" that a person knows or has reason to know has the capacity to cause impairment; or
                          d) under the influence due to a combination of any of the above.

                          You do not have to have a certain alcohol or drug concentration to be convicted of driving under the influence.

                          "Controlled Substances" are Schedule I-V drugs defined by Minnesota statutes.

                          "Intoxicating Substances" include any drug or chemical that when introduced to the body impairs the central nervous system or impairs human audio, visual or mental processes.

                          You can also be convicted under this impairment statute if your alcohol concentration is .08 or more, or if it is .04 or more and you happen to be operating a commercial vehicle.
                          That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                            Decades ago, there were interesting cases in jurisdictions with statutes similar to that regarding the "operation and control" element. Situations where drivers who were under the influence recognized it was unsafe, and decided not to drive either before or after starting the vehicle and took steps such as throwing the keys on the floor and crawling into the back seat to sleep or wait for a ride. Cops would find drivers who had pulled off the road or in a parking lot who had never caused the car to move. The natural tension in conflicting policy factors made them interesting cases. I think this was roughly during the early years of the war on drugs (before N. Reagan though, I think), when a host of automobile exceptions to the warrant requirement were created, mostly by decisional law.

                                I know that in MN, you can be charged with DUI if you're found passed out in the seat of your car, even if you never actually drove it anywhere after drinking. The only exception I recall is when a guy had tossed his keys into his car trunk and then fell asleep in his car. That was back in the 90s or late 80s, and I don't know if that's still the case.
