High Driving A hot Topic for Colorado Law Enforcement

Todd Davis - Tuesday, September 27, 2011

As the legalization and use of medical marijuana in Colorado grows to new heights, Colorado law enforcers are finding themselves busier than ever with traffic violations related to marijuana usage. While all states currently have a law against driving while impaired, there are some lawmakers in the state of Colorado who are proposing to set an impairment standard which would allow prosecutors to charge drivers with a DUI if they have 5 nanograms of THC per milliliter of blood while behind the wheel.  Currently, Nevada and Ohio have a limit of 2 nanograms of THC per milliliter for driving and 12 other states have a zero-tolerance policy for driving while under the influence of any illegal substance. Arizona, Illinois and Rhode Island are just a few of these states with a zero-tolerance policy. Colorado has yet to set a limit for driving while under the influence of THC, but until a law is passed, those driving while under the influence of marijuana beyond the state-allowed limit for impairment will be prosecuted.
