Driving under influence of marijuana is illegal

The Colorado State Patrol reminds motorists that driving while impaired by marijuana (or any other substance) is illegal, according to a press release.

Recent legal changes that loosen regulations governing the purchase, possession and consumption of marijuana by people 21 and older do not mitigate motorists’ responsibility to drive sober at all times.

All Colorado State Patrol troopers will actively seek and arrest impaired drivers.  The increased vigilance leading into 2014 underscores the agency’s ongoing commitment to combating impaired driving.
