Driving Under The Influence Of Drugs
With the recent growth in the medical marijuana industry and the number of patients that it serves, law enforcement has begun to devote more resources to prosecuting people for driving under the influence of substances other than alcohol. Cases involving allegations of driving under the influence of drugs (DUID) and/or driving while ability impaired by drugs have become commonplace over the last few years.
We’ll Work Hard To Minimize Penalties And Consequences
At Jurdem, LLC, our Boulder DUI drug attorneys can guide you through the often complex and frustrating process of defending yourself against these charges. A DUID charge can result from the presence of illegal or prescription drugs in your blood stream. A DUID conviction carries the same devastating penalties as DUI, such as potential jail time, fines, probation, substance abuse treatment and monitoring, and the loss of driving privileges. It is our goal to minimize your exposure to these consequences by attacking every aspect of the prosecution’s case from the validity of the initial stop to the proper handling of your blood sample. Trust us to explore every legal avenue open to us to defend your rights.
Our Approach To Defending Against DUI Charges
Unlike cases involving alcohol, there is no breath test for measuring drug impairment. A blood test is required for analysis of controlled substances in a person’s system. In these situations, when a law enforcement officer instructs you to take a blood test you are required to do it. If you do not comply, you will be deemed to be refusing to take a blood test, which means you will lose your driver’s license for one year.
One of the most significant challenges in defending DUID cases is that the prosecution will typically bring in experts to testify regarding your impairment based on the blood test results. At Jurdem, LLC, we are familiar with the science involved in these cases and are experienced in defending against these charges. We will put our knowledge and experience to work for you to get you the best outcome possible.
