Since Amendment 64 passed in Colorado, it is now legal to possess and use limited amounts of marijuana. However, it remains against the law to operate a motor vehicle if you are under the influence of marijuana or other drugs. Even if you have a prescription for medical marijuana, you may still face charges of driving under the influence
At The Law Offices of Gabriel N. Schwartz, P.C., we provide tenacious, aggressive defense against charges of impaired driving caused by drugs, including marijuana and prescription medication.
Experienced Denver Attorneys Handling Drug DUI Charges
Under Colorado state law, a motorist is presumed to be intoxicated if he or she has 5 nanograms of THC per milliliter of blood in his or her system. However, many drivers may have some residual THC in their blood even if the effects of marijuana have long worn off. Because everyone’s body reacts to marijuana differently, a level of 5 nanograms may affect some people more than others.
Fortunately, this presumption can be challenged in court. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can gather and present the evidence in your case so the prosecutors and the court fully understand your unique situation.
A conviction of driving under the influence of drugs can result in penalties like monetary fines, court-ordered community service or drug treatment classes, suspension or revocation of your driver’s license or even jail time. We can help you protect your rights and pursue the best possible result in your case.
