DUI with Drugs in Colorado Springs

Call An Experienced DUI Attorney for the Help You Need

Just as it is illegal to drive under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, it is illegal to drive while under the influence of controlled substances in the state of Colorado. Unlike alcohol-related offenses in which an officer may use a Breathalyzer test to measure the amount of alcohol in your body, the level of impairment caused by a drug or controlled substance must be measured by a chemical test.

Several factors must be considered during a drug-related DUI arrest, but an officer may use his or her discretion when deciding whether you are or are not impaired. Gauging a level of impairment can be difficult, especially regarding driving while using cough medication to treat a common cold, using a legal prescription medication, or after using medical marijuana. This difficulty has led to many false arrests and has unjustly put countless Coloradans in the criminal system.

DUI and drug offenses can be hard to prove and will require the immediate attention of a skilled Colorado Springs DUI lawyer who has handled these types of cases. The Damascus Road Law Group knows how to challenge specific tests, including chemical test results and the way the officer administered the test.

Drug test results may be challenged regarding the following:

  • The time that passed between you allegedly using the drug and the time the test was administered

  • Officer error
  • Inaccurate readings
  • The individual's sensitivity to drugs
