Morro Bay is a small city along the coast of California in San Luis Obispo County. Just over 10,000 people reside in Morro Bay, and its residents enjoy the mild Mediterranean climate that is so typical of coastal California. The average temperature in Morro Bay hovers around the mid-sixties year-round, as visitors and residents enjoy warm summers and mild winters with only about 50 days of rain per year.
Located along the Estero Bay, Morro Bay is known for Morrow Rock, a 576 ft tall volcanic plug that lies at the entrance to the harbor. Morro Rock was designated as a historical landmark in 1968. The base of the rock is open to hikers and visitors, but climbing the rock itself can only be done with a permit. This is to prevent possible injury to climbers and to preserve the peregrine falcons that nest there.
Tourism and fishing are the primary economic forces in Morro Bay. The town was once home to a thriving Abalone fishing enterprise, but over-harvesting has taken a toll on the Abalone population in the area and now fisherman harvest halibut, rockfish, albacore, and sole in the area. Oysters are also farmed and harvested in the shallow back bay.

Bail Bonds in Morro Bay
Cash bail is money paid to the court to obtain a defendant’s release from jail. The bail schedule in Morro Bay is set by the Superior Court in San Luis Obispo county. The bail schedule defines the standard bail amounts required for individuals to bail out of jail for various offenses. Each charge and/or enhancement carries its own bail requirement. To calculate the amount of bail required to get someone out of jail in San Luis Obispo, a person must add up all of the bail amounts for each charge and enhancement.
When a defendant cannot afford the entire cost of bail, a bail bond can be made to the court using a bail bond agent. A bail bond agent works with a surety company to help defendants get out of jail for a fraction of the out-of-pocket cost of cash bail. The bail bond is a promise to the court to pay the entire amount of the cash bail, should the defendant fail to uphold the terms of their pre-trial release.
In return for this promise to pay, the defendant pays the bail bond company a non-refundable fee, usually 10% of the total cost of the bail. Once the bail bond has been arranged, the defendant is free to return home, to work and go about daily life, until the legal case against them has been concluded.

DUI of Drugs in Morrow Bay
DUI of Drugs, or Driving Under the Influence of Drugs, is a serious offense. It is similar to the charge of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol, the more common form of DUI, and carries with it serious consequences. A charge of DUI of drugs can result from driving while under the influence of any drug or marijuana, including prescription drugs, whether legally prescribed to the defendant, or not.
VC 23152(e) – DUI of Drugs Charge
Driving under the influence of Drugs is a violation of the Vehicle Code 231452(e), which reads: “It is unlawful for a person who is under the influence of any drug to drive a vehicle.” It is very similar to driving under the influence of alcohol. One way that this charge differs from a regular “DUI” charge is that when an officer suspects the presence of drugs in someone's system, a breathalyzer test will not show drugs and a blood test will have to be ordered. Other evidence that can be used to charge someone with DUI of drugs includes the defendant's statements, behavior, and appearance.
