Colorado Lawmakers Fail to Set THC Limits

If you are a Colorado Medical Marijuana patient hoping for some clarification on the allowable THC blood limit while driving, you are out of luck for now. The recent “Pot DUI Bill” died in the Colorado Senate after lawmakers couldn’t decide on the “right number” for a limit.

So does that mean you don’t need to be concerned about “driving while high” if you’re a Colorado MMJ patient? Think again. According to one of the most respected DUI defense lawyers in Denver, “The current standard is the same as for alcohol intoxication when we’re talking about driving: DUI is substantially incapable, either mentally or physically, or both, to exercise clear judgment, sufficient physical control, or due care in the safe operation of a vehicle.”

He continues, “DWAI is when alcohol or drugs affects the person to the slightest degree so that the person is less able than the person ordinarily would have been, either mentally or physically, or both, to exercise clear judgment, sufficient physical control, or due care in the safe operation of a motor vehicle.”
