Although it is legal to use and purchase cannabis recreationally, it is against the law to drive under the influence of marijuana. According to state law, motorists are considered legally impaired if their blood test results detect at least five nanograms of active THC. However, cannabis affects everyone differently. While more novice consumers may be significantly impaired after consuming the legal limit, it may not even hinder those who use pot quite frequently.

If you have been arrested for a marijuana-related DUID in Colorado, our Denver DUI lawyers at Orr Law Firm are committed to helping you prove that you were not under the influence of marijuana while operating a vehicle. We can assess your case, determine any weaknesses in the prosecution’s argument, and create an effective defense plan to get the best possible results in court. Do not hesitate to let us protect your rights and future today.

Marijuana DUI Penalties in Colorado

In Colorado, you commit the crime of driving under the influence of marijuana in Colorado if you are unable to safely operate a vehicle due to cannabis consumption. In addition to determining if a person when over the legal limit, law enforcement must prove—through objective evidence—that you couldn’t safely drive.

The following are the common types of visual cues which prove someone was actually too high to safely operate a vehicle:

  • The person commits a traffic violation
  • The person weaves in and out of his/her own lane
  • The person drives too slow or too fast
  • The person appears to be stoned (e.g. red eyes, slurred speech, slow motor skills, etc.)
  • The police discover cannabis in the vehicle
  • The police smell marijuana odor in the vehicle
  • The police discover marijuana paraphernalia (e.g. a pipe, a bong, a joint, etc.) in the vehicle

The penalties for a marijuana DUI conviction are the same for a regular one. A first-time offense is punishable by a maximum one-year jail sentence, fines not exceeding $1,000, license suspension for up to nine months, up to 96 of community service, and 12 points against your driver’s license.

Let us help you get your life back on the right track immediately.
