Drugged driving charges are serious and should be met with the preparation of a strong criminal defense.
Soon the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin a campaign to warn people about smoking marijuana and driving. The campaign is called "Drive High, Get a DUI." Under Colorado's intoxicated driving law, drunk and drugged driving are combined into a single category. CDOT and others note that this is one of the reasons numbers and data on drugged driving have been difficult to collect and more information on the problem is needed. Some Colorado law enforcement agencies were, however, able to provide drugged driving figures; for instance, 27 people have been arrested for marijuana DUI since last July.
