Urgent Call to Action!

This year’s DUID bill, SB12-117, has been making its course through the Colorado State Legislature, and is a few steps away from being passed into law. Recently, on 4/27/12, the bill was stripped of its provision that drivers who test positive for Schedule 1 and 2 drugs also would be charged with per-se DUID. This turned the bill into an extreme measure against medicinal cannabis patients in Colorado as it now sets a per-se 5 nano-gram limit (which says testing over five nano-grams is enough evidence to convict you of DUID, regardless) only for cannabis.

Please call your Senator this weekend (contact info below) . Ask them to vote against SB12-117, the DUID bill, this Monday, April 30, 2012 when it is brought up for its Second reading.

Some of the points you should emphasize are:

Medical Cannabis patients will often have high levels of Cannabinoids (THC/CBD) in them without being impaired as the body quickly builds up a tolerance to Cannabinoids. These people would not be legally able to drive if this bill passes.

Colorado already has laws on the books that prohibit driving under the slightest degree of impairment, and people are routinely convicted of driving while drugged under current law. SB 117 merely creates needless and discriminatory measures and penalties.

This bill creates a false dilemma by forcing medicinal cannabis patients to give up the right to drive a car. This is not fair as it leaves no shades of grey – when in fact with such a large population as Colorado, many people will have a bona fide tolerance to being inebriated from cannabis use. However, jurors will not be able to consider this if a person tests over five nano-grams.

There is no solid scientific evidence a set nano-gram limit judges impairment. Therefore, along with the lack of increase in traffic deaths, there is not any urgency to pass a bill like this.

A “Per Se” five nano-gram limit is the wrong law. A ”Rebuttal Presumption” five nano-gram limit would be better since it would allow Defendants a chance to prove their innocence.

The “DUID Working Group” set up by the Legislators last year came back against a five nano-gram limit. Instead they recommend training more Law Enforcement Officers to be Drug Recognition Experts.

Calling your Senator TODAY is the preferred method of contact as the bill will be heard by the Senators on Monday, 4/30/12 for its second reading.

Please be very respectful in your communications with the Senators.
