Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana is Still Illegal

As Amendment 64 is added to The Colorado Constitution by proclamation of Governor Hickenlooper, The Colorado State Patrol would like to remind motorists that if you chose to consume marijuana and make the decision to drive that you are taking a huge risk.

“Drivers must realize that if you are stopped by law enforcement officials and it is determined that your ability to operate a motor vehicle has been affected to the slightest degree by drugs or alcohol or both, you may be arrested and subjected to prosecution under Colorado’s DUI/DUID laws,” said Colonel James Wolfinbarger, Chief of the Colorado State Patrol. “It is imperative that everyone takes responsibility for public safety when driving on Colorado’s highways.”
