Marijuana & Driving Laws

joint

Many cases of DUI after using marijuana have been arising in Colorado. Over the past few months we have witnessed many monumental changes in marijuana laws in the State Of Colorado.  I often get asked how much marijuana you can have in your possession, and if you are able to drive after you use marijuana. Here is the latest in a series of Lawyer Q&A regarding marijuana and driving laws.

Q: What are the laws on driving with marijuana in your possession?

My answer: ”There is no specific law saying that you can’t have marijuana in your possession unless you are under 21 or if the quantity is too high. You can’t buy over an ounce and you can’t grow more than 6 plants. There are City laws also that can limit how much you can have. You are also not allowed to smoke in public.”

Another question which I touched on in an earlier blog post is “Are you allowed to drive if you use medical marijuana and are licensed by the state?” The answer is no. Just like other prescribed medications that can impair your ability to drive, if the level of marijuana in your system is too high, you may be convicted of a DUI.

Lawyer Q&A: Medical Marijuana

 David Kosmecki, Justin Klitch

Due to all of the new laws passed at the beginning of the year, several questions are presented to me on a daily basis. Here is another round of Lawyer Q&A, with this weeks topic on Marijuana and DUI laws. I have been practicing law in Boulder, Colorado for over 20 years and specialize in DUI defense.  Please contact me today if you are in need of DUI defense or any attorney services. I am here to help!

 Q: “Are you allowed to drive if you use medical marijuana and are licensed by the state?”

My answer:

There are many prescribed medications that will impair your ability to drive. Any of them, including medical marijuana, could cause you to be guilty of a DUI or DWAI. If you drive and your tested blood shows levels of the medication or THC from Marijuana then you may be impaired and may be convicted. It is a very serious business and the police are cracking down on Medical Marijuana and driving.

Marijuana Laws

 

marijuana-dui-colorado-revisit 

Q: “Since laws have passed in Colorado legalizing recreational marijuana use, is it OK to smoke and drive?”

 A: The laws that govern smoking and driving are the same as the laws for drinking and driving. For those over 21, drinking alcohol and smoking pot may be legal, but when their use impairs or puts a driver under the influence it is a crime. There are ways of measuring the THC content of your blood. If there are active THC markers in your blood there is a good chance that your ability could be considered impaired. Right now with even a couple of nanograms you are believed to be impaired and over 5ng and they consider it to be under the influence. The District Attorney has expert witnesses that would testify to that relationship in court.

So just like drinking, one must wait until the marijuana has left your system before you operate a motor vehicle. The time that the effects of marijuana wear off vary between people just as alcohol does. It is best not to take chances and wait until it wears off. The police are trained to spot the effects and will not hesitate to write the ticket. If you do get a ticket, take it seriously. The blood tests can show THC levels for many days but not the active THC levels. Those wear off much more quickly and are what will cause impairment.

I have been practicing in Boulder and surrounding areas since 1983 and followed each year with the changes with the DMV and the County Court. I want you to feel confident that your rights are protected and that someone will guide you through the maze that is our justice system.

Happy New Year

New-Year-2014-Image-Dekstop-High-Wallpaper

Happy New Year from everyone at The Law Office of Paul Stuber! As the new year is now upon us, here is some useful information on changes from the Colorado Motor Vehicle Department regarding Ignition Interlock devices.

Ignition Interlock is a device that is installed on motor vehicles to prohibit individuals from operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. It requires your breath sample before the engine will start and you are periodically required to provide breath samples while driving. If the device detects an elevated alcohol concentration level the vehicle will not start.

Important!  Legislative mandates effective 01/01/14 have significant changes to previous laws involving alcohol violations, Persistent Drunk Drivers (PDD) and the Ignition Interlock program.  Those changes include:

·         The reduction of the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) on a chemical test from 0.17 to 0.15 to designate you as a Persistent Drunk Driver.

·         The refusal of a chemical test at a traffic stop on or after 01/01/14 will now result in a Persistent Drunk Driver designation.

·         If you have refused a chemical test prior to 01/01/14 and were previously ineligible to reinstate early with Interlock, you may now either finish serving the remainder of your revocation and reinstate with full driving privileges, or serve at least two months and apply for early reinstatement with Interlock for one year.  You are not eligible for Financial Assistance in this case.

If you have multiple alcohol violations or refusals on your record, the wait time for early reinstatement with Interlock has been reduced to one or two months, respectively. For more information on ignition interlock devices please contact us today at 303-442-6448.

Holiday DUI Checkpoints In Colorado

paul

There is an increase in DUI related traffic stops around the holiday season in Colorado and around the country, so be on the lookout for nationwide DUI crackdowns this holiday season. In last weeks blog post, I touched on a nationwide effort to minimize the amount of intoxicated motorists. Colorado DUI penalties are some of the highest in the country, so make sure to use caution when operating a motor vehicle this holiday season!

Police plan to hold DUI/drivers license checkpoints at undisclosed locations in Colorado between the hours of 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. Police have also planned for other checkpoints throughout the month. In addition to DUI/drivers license checkpoints, you will also see the PD making lots of traffic stops during this highly visible enforcement period.

“If we suspect anyone is driving while under the influence, officers will show zero tolerance for drunk or drugged driving.”

For questions regarding DUI defense please call The Law Office Of Paul Stuber today at (303) 442-6448. I have been practicing law in Boulder, Colorado and surrounding communities since 1983 and I am here to help you with personal service that matters!

Driving While Your License Is Suspended

stuber

Here is a Q&A that I participated in, with the topic being driving without a license after a DUI. If you are in Colorado and need proper DUI defense, call The Law Office Of Paul Stuber at (303) 442-6448 today.

Q: What’s the penalty if you’re driving under a revoked or suspended license after you have been charged with a DUI, and you’ve been pulled over? What will happen?

Paul Stuber: Well, there’s jail
time for driving under
revocation. It’s
 mandatory if the driver
has been driving under
revocation based on an
alcohol conviction. There’s an additional one-year of suspension that’s tacked on to whatever your suspension is right now with the DMV, so it’s pretty serious.

For more information on DUI defense visit my website or call me today. I have been practicing law in Colorado for over 30 years and I am here to provide you with reliable, personal service.
