Driving Under The Influence Of Drugs

DUID, or driving under the influence of drugs, is charged when the driver is "substantially impaired." Although marijuana is now legal in Colorado, as are many other over-the-counter and validly obtained prescription drugs, if you have taken enough to be considered "substantially impaired," you could be charged with DUID.

The Colorado police department has "drug recognition experts" among their team to determine whether you are indeed substantially impaired at the time of a stop. It is likely that you will also have to submit to a blood test.

The consequences of DUID are similar to those in a DUI conviction.

The objective measurements to determine whether someone is legally "intoxicated" in a DUI case are not as clear cut in a DUID. It is critical to hire an experienced team to advocate for you and protect your rights in this regard.
