Colorado DUI Drug Laws
Although the consumption of marijuana is legal in Colorado, driving while high can result in DUI charges. State law specifies that five nanograms of active THC in the blood qualifies as driving under the influence, and the police can also arrest you for observed impairment. The state can charge you with a DUI for any level of a prohibited drug in your system.
The state can also file charges under open container laws if there is marijuana in your vehicle that is in the passenger area and:
- In an open container
- In a container with a broken seal
- Showing signs of consumption
Penalties for a Drug-Related DUI
A DUI based on marijuana or other drugs can result in thousands of dollars in fines, jail time, community service, and loss of driving privileges. Colorado State Patrol troopers issue thousands of citations each year for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. To protect your rights and avoid these stiff penalties, it pays to choose a dedicated firm. Fife Luneau, P.C. proudly displays our recent case results to prove our reputation as some of the most successful DUI drug lawyers in Denver and Colorado.

The Role of Drug Recognition Evaluators
Specific police officers are authorized to perform Drug Recognition Evaluations. This evaluation functions as a form of field sobriety test. It’s voluntary, and the police officer will testify in court as to what their findings are.
You can also have a blood test administered which can show whether there were traces of drugs in your system. However, just because the test finds traces doesn’t prove that they impaired you. A vigorous defense will bring this out in court.
