DUI - “Driving Under the Influence” (DUI) means that your ingestion of alcohol, marijuana, other drugs or a combination, has made you substantially incapable, either mentally or physically,to safely operate a motor vehicle. In the State of Colorado, you are presumed to be “under the influence” of alcohol when your blood alcohol level is 0.08 or higher. You are presumed to be “under the influence of marijuana” when you have 5 or more nanograms of active THC in your blood. The prosecution will also use evidence of bad driving, your performance on road side exams and your own statements to prove their case.
