DUID (Driving Under the Influence of Drugs)

Driving With Drugs In Your System Still Counts As Incapacitated

If you are driving erratically, you may be pulled over by a police officer. You can tell the officer you were not drinking, but if you have drugs in your system you can still be arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or DUID. The penalties for this crime are identical to those for a standard DUI or DWAI. You do not want a conviction on your record. You need a Boulder attorney with extensive experience in drug DUI defense.

At The Moorhead Law Group, we know the difficulties you are facing. Drug DUI can be different, because drugs tend to stay in an individual’s system longer. You may not actually have been impaired at the time of the arrest, but if you were arrested and were required to submit to a blood or urine test, you can still be charged if drugs register on your blood test.

We have more than 25 years of experience with the Colorado criminal justice system. We are dedicated to protecting the rights of people who have ended up on the wrong side of the law. Both of our attorneys are former prosecutors who have helped many clients avoid serious DUI charges and the associated penalties.

But Officer, I Have Not Done Drugs Today

Unlike alcohol, which works its way out of your system within a few hours, many drugs can take days or weeks to get out of your bloodstream. If you used illegal drugs, or even took a prescription drug within the past few days, traces of that drug can show up in a blood or urine test and you can be charged with DUID. Now that marijuana is legal in Colorado, the police are cracking down on drug-related DUI cases. Do not risk arrest for something you did days ago.

Our lawyers will review your situation and give you an honest assessment of what may happen in your case and whether you need to retain our services to prevent serious harm to your future. There are many defenses we can use to protect your rights, including calling into question the arresting police officer’s use of proper procedure during the arrest and whether he or she was a trained drug recognition expert (DRE). We will do everything in our power to bring your case to the best possible resolution.
