The court would also order between forty-eight (48) and ninety-six (96) hours of useful public service. Depending on the circumstances of the DUI first offense, the court may require supervised probation. Learn more about a DUI first offense at our DUI First Offense page.
Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana
Colo. Const. Art. XVIII, Section 16. Personal Use and Regulation of Marijuana, made it legal for persons twenty-one years old and older to use marijuana recreationally. However, it is illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana. The legal limit of marijuana in Colorado has been set at 5 nanograms weight of THC in the blood of a driving suspect. However, in reality this arbitrary limit has little to do with actual impairment. Learn more about Driving under the influence of marijuana from our Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana page.
Colorado DMV Hearings
If you have been arrested for a DUI and your blood alcohol content (BAC) registered at 0.08 or above, then you are in danger of losing your driver’s license for a period of time. Additionally, if the DMV determines that you refused to take a blood or breath test when requested to do so, then you could lose your driver’s license privileges.
