Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUID) Attorney

Marijuana DUI Laws in Colorado

The term "DUID" refers to the act of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs, just as it is unlawful to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that equals or exceeds .08% it is also illegal to operate a vehicle under the influence of a controlled substance according to Colorado Revised Statute 42-4-1301. In the past, state law did not offer a threshold blood concentration level for drug impairment. However, Colorado's new law designates a blood concentration threshold for THC in a driver's bloodstream.

A driver is considered under the influence of drugs if his/her bloodstream contains 5 or more nanograms of delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) per milliliter of blood. The driver's THC level can be determined using a blood test. According to the new laws, the driver's blood must be tested within a "reasonable" amount of time after he/she drove the vehicle. In the past, drugged driving in Colorado was considered a form of DUI. While DUID still involves driving under the influence, drugged driving laws provide prosecutors with the ability to convict a driver of DUID based on the level of THC in his/her bloodstream alone.

What Are the Penalties for Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana

Just like with DUI penalties, DUID penalties are based on the circumstances in which the arrest was made and how many previous convictions you have.

Typically without death, injury, property damage, or pervious arrests the penalty for a 1st time DUID is:

  • Up to 1 Year in Jail
  • Up to $1.5k Fine
  • Up to 1 Year Licenses Suspension
  • Up to 96 Community Service Hours
