Our experienced attorneys are here to help you navigate the repercussions of driving under the influence of drugs.
With the legalization of marijuana, more and more people are partaking in using it recreationally and medicinally in their daily lives. However, like driving under the influence of alcohol, you can be stopped for underlying traffic offenses and asked to partake in a standard field sobriety test if police suspect that you’re under the influence of marijuana. But, many people don’t know that the roadside maneuver techniques used to test for drunk driving are ineffective for proving someone’s impairment from marijuana.
Since the legal use of marijuana is relatively recent, the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles currently has no rules in place for marijuana DUIs which means that your license is not at risk if you’re suspected of using marijuana and getting behind the wheel. However, being charged with a marijuana DUI can be a long process as blood tests, evaluations, and several court appearances occur.
While being pulled over by law enforcement can be nerve-racking, it’s important that you remain calm and comply with the officers involved. If you’ve been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, following these steps can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case:

I am so thankful I called Liberty Law Center. The amount of knowledge and dedication that comes from Valerie is next to none. She helped me understand the entire process. Made me feel like I was not alone. It took me 15-plus years to deal with my issue. Now as it gets resolved I have a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I owe it all to Valerie. Mr. Beck has put together an amazing team.
Divorce is never easy and mine was not. I hired Drake Larson due to the incompetence of another attorney so I was already distraught with the entire situation. Drake assured me he would get to the facts of my case and get control of the situation and figure out the best way to a fair outcome. To make a long story short after 10 months we finally went to the Judge today. Let me assure you that Mr. Larsen was confident, well-versed, prepared, and went above and beyond my expectations. To whoever is reading this take my advice and hire Drake Larsen if you need expert representation.
I am beyond thankful for this incredible group of people, especially Bill Beck and his awesome sidekick Valerie. They’ve been with me through the (year-long) court process at every step, and have provided nothing but compassion, clarity, guidance, support, and in the end, a big victory thanks to Mr. Beck’s above-and-beyond efforts. Do yourself a massive favor and hire this team!!
Drake Larson was a wonderful Lawyer. He is very knowledgeable in his field. If he didn't know the answer to some very off the wall situations, he would research and get back to me quickly. He was very professional but also personable. He made me feel comfortable and confident in my case and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome. I highly recommend Drake.
Can't say enough about this amazing team! Both Bill and Valerie were a huge support in helping with our case and I can't thank them enough for everything they did from start to finish! Valerie is amazing with follow up and always made us feel like we could call her about anything we had questions about or needed help with. Very professional team and we highly recommend Liberty Law Center!
If you are are pulled over under suspicion of a DUI-D, cooperate with the police officer. You are required by law to submit to a blood or urine test, but your refusal could be used against you in court.
A Colorado DUI attorney will work to establish the most plausible line of defense for your case and will negotiate with prosecutors in an effort to get your charges reduced if possible.
