Alcohol still leads marijuana 21 to 1 for DUI arrests

A sobriety checkpoint in northern Colorado last Friday evening led to 22 DUI arrests.  Of those arrested for DUI, only one was alleged to have been driving under the influence of cannabis while the other 21 people were alleged to be driving under the influence of alcohol.  It should be noted that 1,572 cars were stopped to obtain these 22 arrests and none of those charged have been convicted of anything.
There are a multitude of constitutional issues involved in DUI cases involving sobriety checkpoints.  If you’ve been contacted by police and charged with a DUI in Denver, please seek an attorney to discuss your case before going to court and speaking with the prosecutor.
