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.
