DUI Marijuana

Colorado passed House Bill 1325, sometimes referred to as the drugged driving bill or the driving while stoned bill or the too high to drive bill. The limit for marijuana in a driver’s system is now 5 nanograms of THC (Delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol- the active ingredient in marijuana) per milliliter of blood. If the Driver in a DUI drugs case submits a blood test reflecting a blood content of 5 nanograms of THC per milliliter of blood, the statute indicates that there is a permissible inference that the defendant driver was under the influence of drugs. A Colorado jury will ultimately decide if the defendant driver was under the influence. However, this 5 nanogram limit now gives prosecutors a strong edge in arguing that a driver was DUI. Juries are not required to find a defendant driver guilty in cases where their blood content is 5 nanograms, however in all practicality, it puts the onus on the defendant driver to show that they weren’t DUI. A defendant must then show that they weren’t under the influence even though their THC level exceeded the nanogram numerical level set forth by statute.

Client Reviews
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda
"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve
"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
