How long does marijuana stay in your system?

Posted on: April 15th, 2014

With the recent passage of Amendment 64 and employers still choosing to administer drug testing based on their company’s policies, this is one of the most commonly asked questions. The simple answer is that marijuana, or more specifically the active ingredient in marijuana, THC, can stay in the one’s body for as long as forty-five days! The drug metabolite (as your body processes the THC through excretion), which is commonly tested for on drug tests is THC-COOH. Unlike THC, THC-COOH is inactive and does not cause any feelings of being “high.”  Also, depending on the individual’s history / usage of the drug, their preferred method of administering the drug, and several body factors such as resting metabolism, exercise, and diet can affect the drug’s half-life in the body to stay in one’s system.

Common tests used to check for marijuana use, look at the current amount of THC-COOH found in the sample. These tests include saliva, urine, blood, and hair samples as the drug can be expressed and found within these bodily fluids and within hair follicles. Also, each test has its Pros and Cons based on obtaining the sample, as well as how long THC-COOH will be present in the certain bodily fluid or hair sample. For example, the Oral Saliva Test is becoming a popular test for “random” Colorado workplace drug tests, as it is relatively non-invasive and quick to administer. Also, you will test positive for a Saliva Test almost immediately after smoking marijuana up to 12-24 hours depending on the individual. Stating the obvious, the best way to pass a saliva test is to stop smoking at least a day prior to your oral saliva test. In addition, remember to floss, brush your teeth, and use mouthwash thoroughly to help excise any residual toxins that may be lingering in your mouth.

The most common drug test administered by most workplaces across the United States is still the dreaded Urine Test. A common misconception related to Urine Testing is that the test is checking to see if you are high at the time of the sample. The reality is that Urine Testing is actually testing for non-impairment drug metabolites that reveal a user’s past consumption at an unspecified point in time. Unfortunately for regular marijuana users, the metabolite THC-COOH is fat soluble – meaning that it stores itself nicely in all of your fatty deposits throughout the body. In addition, because of its properties and being fat soluble, the drug is excreted out of the body at a much slower rate. For first and one-time users, THC-COOH can be detectible on a Urine Test up to a couple hours after the initial intake. For regular users, THC-COOH can still show up days and even weeks later after stopping usage!

A lesser-known test to check for marijuana usage is the Hair Follicle test, which can reveal a user’s drug history for the past ninety days! With marijuana, THC binds to hair follicles and can show up around seven days after usage. *Keep in mind that THC doesn’t always bind to the hair and is not a very accurate method of testing for marijuana usage because of this.

Last and certainly not least, is the Blood Test, which tests for both THC and THC-COOH. The Blood Test is commonly used to test for driving under the influence. Under Colorado law, if a driver tests at 5 nanograms or more of THC, they may be presumed to be under the influence. Immediately after smoking, THC blood levels will likely rise to 100 nanograms or higher depending on the dose. Within one to two hours after smoking, THC levels should dissipate to near zero (again depending on the dosage). However, many regular smokers can test at 5 nanograms several hours and even days after they stop smoking! Fortunately, most individuals (even regular smokers) should be below 5 nanograms after a few days of no smoking.

If you have been pulled over for DUID, you will be asked to take blood test. This test is optional. If you decline to take a blood test, you may face more severe consequences at the DMV than if you take the test. On the other hand, without a blood test, it may be difficult for the government to prove that you recently consumed marijuana and that you were impaired. Regardless of what decision you make, immediately after your arrest you should contact a DUI lawyer who understands how marijuana is metabolized and how to interpret different test results.

2014 St. Patrick’s Day Arrests

Posted on: March 28th, 2014

While March 17th is a day to promote and celebrate Irish tradition and heritage, the St. Patrick’s Day weekend left some with seemly unluckiness as 471 individuals were busted for driving under the influence. 

According to the Colorado Department of Transportation’s website, CDOT teamed up with more than 90 law enforcement agencies across the state to lead to a high crackdown of impaired drivers. While the number of this year’s arrests at 471 is slightly lower than last year’s arrest totals (486 arrests for 2013), the number remains to indicate that the law enforcement agencies will continue their tough and aggressive approach to catching drunk drivers. In addition, most of the arrests have come from the Colorado State Patrol with 96 arrests. 

For reference, the numbers of arrests of suspected impaired drivers reported by CDOT do not indicate whether the arrests were made for alcohol or drug intoxication. Luckily, attorney Jared Adams has a proven track record of representing and defending individuals being charged with suspected driving under the influence of alcohol, marijuana and other illicit drugs, and prescription medications.

While every case has different circumstances and intricate details surrounding your arrest, we at the Adams Law Firm look at the big picture in helping to get you the best results possible. Attorney Jared Adams has worked with and helped many, many individuals whose situations may be very similar to yours.

Leading the industry as a recognized marijuana-impaired driving defense attorney, Jared Adams is up-to-date on the current and ever changing laws and regulations to help provide you with the best legal representation possible. Jared Adams realizes that a regular user of marijuana is going to have a higher than usual baseline of THC in the bloodstream, and even after stopping usage, the user may still test positive for THC for days afterwards. It is for this reason and in your best interest to schedule a meeting to discuss the facts in your case.

Furthermore, Jared Adams has a proven track record of success in defending individuals’ accused of driving under the influence of alcohol. Again, while every case is different, there are common themes and underlying issues that may help lead to the dismissal or a plea reduction in your charges.

Field Sobriety Testing & DUIs: Myths versus Facts (Part 2)

Posted on: February 26th, 2014
Field sobriety testing is not as objective as you think, and it’s important you exercise your right to refuse this testing if you think you may not “pass” it.

Field sobriety testing is not as objective as you think, and it’s important you exercise your right to refuse this testing if you think you may not “pass” it.

Concluding Field Sobriety Testing & DUIs: Myths versus Facts (Part 1), below, we will discuss two additional common myths – and explain the facts – associated with field sobriety testing. Drivers who are aware of the facts behind these myths will have the best chances of protecting their rights if they are ever pulled over by cops and suspected of DUI. Being able to protect their rights from the get go can help people suspected of DUI build the strongest possible defense against these charges.

Myth 3: The tests used in field sobriety testing are always the same

This is simply untrue. There are three tests that are considered to make up standard field sobriety testing (SFST, as developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration); SFST include the horizontal gaze nystagmus test, the walk-and-turn test and the one-leg stand test. However, in the field, police may request drivers to submit to any number of different tests in addition to SFST – such as saying the alphabet backwards, attempting different balancing poses, etc.

What this means is that, in practice, there is rarely a “standard” test that all police officers use and that specific tests used as part of on-the-scene field sobriety testing are often up to the cop’s discretion.

Myth 4: There are objective standards for judging whether someone has passed/failed field sobriety testing.

Given that police can use any number of different methods as part of field sobriety testing, it necessarily follows that there are not objective standards to test the “pass/fail” of these tests. In fact, what many drivers do not know is that judging field sobriety tests is stacked against the drivers; this is because, when drivers do something wrong on these tests, points are taken off, but when they do something right, points are not added back to their scores.

Because judging field sobriety testing is typically a subjective practice – and because making DUI arrests can be a huge money maker for cities, drivers should exercise their right to refuse this testing if they think that they may not “pass” it for any reason.

Field Sobriety Testing & DUIs: Myths versus Facts (Part 1)

Posted on: February 18th, 2014
Don’t be tricked by the myths of field sobriety testing. Know the facts so you can protect your rights if you are ever pulled over for a DUI traffic stop.

Don’t be tricked by the myths of field sobriety testing. Know the facts so you can protect your rights if you are ever pulled over for a DUI traffic stop.

Field sobriety testing is often part of a DUI traffic stop, as it is tool that police use to try to determine if a driver may be intoxicated and, as a result, if the driver should be asked to submit to a breath/blood (or potentially be arrested). Although drivers may be aware of some of the components of field sobriety testing – like for instance the horizontal gaze nystagmus test (when drivers are supposed to follow a moving object with their eyes), it’s far less common that they are aware of their rights when it comes to field sobriety testing and DUI stops.

In this and an upcoming blog, we will highlight some of the most common myths associated with field sobriety testing and dispel them by explaining the facts that drivers should know. Being aware of these facts of field sobriety testing can help drivers protect their rights and appropriately defend themselves if they are ever pulled over for a DUI traffic stop.

Myth 1: Drivers have to submit to field sobriety testing when police ask them to.

WRONG. When police pull drivers over and ask (or try to tell) them to submit to field sobriety testing, drivers have the right to refuse this testing. It’s important to point out that, if you are pulled over and suspected of DUI and you think that you may field sobriety tests for any reason, it’s always a good idea to refuse to submit to them.

This is because failing these tests could be used against you later if you are charged with a DUI (however, if you don’t submit to this testing, then you won’t be giving police or prosecutors any additional possible evidence against you).

Myth 2: Refusing to undergo field sobriety testing will result in automatic penalties.

Wrong again. Your right to refuse to submit to field sobriety testing will not result in automatic penalties. It may trigger officers’ suspicions and cause them to ask you to submit to a breathalyzer or blood test; at this point, if you refuse blood alcohol testing, then you will automatically be penalized for your refusal (in that your driver’s license will automatically be suspended for at least one year). However, exercising your right to refuse field sobriety testing is not linked to any automatic penalties.

Stay posted for the upcoming second part of this blog for the facts behind some more common myths associated with field sobriety testing.

Super Bowl 2014 weekend DUI Arrests

Posted on: February 17th, 2014

During the 2014 Super Bowl weekend occurring between January 31st and February 3rd, statewide, there were more than 300 individuals arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs through the Heat is On Drunk Driving enforcement campaign (321 arrested in total). According to a media release from the Colorado Department of Transportation, nearly 100 Colorado law enforcement agencies participated in the drunk driving campaign with numerous checkpoints set up throughout the state. In addition, the agencies budgeted and allowed for an increased presence on major roadways and highways. While this number is slightly decreased from years’ past (exactly 100 less than last year – last year there were 421 total arrests over this period), it is still higher than we would like to see.

The breakdown of arrests from this year’s Super Bowl weekend (January 31st through February 3rd) is as follows:

  • Denver: 40 Arrests
  • Aurora: 34 Arrests
  • Colorado Springs: 21 Arrests
  • Arapahoe County: 11 Arrests 

2013’s breakdown of arrests during Super Bowl weekend (February 1, 2013 to February 4, 2013) is as follows:

  • Denver: 54 Arrests
  • Aurora: 32 Arrests
  • Colorado Springs: 28 Arrests
  • Arapahoe County: 7 Arrests

The next Heat is On Drunk Driving enforcement campaign is scheduled for St. Patrick’s Day weekend March 14th through March 17th. During these enforcement periods, it is especially important to drink responsibly and to plan alternative rides accordingly. If you are going to celebrate, especially around the busy holidays, some taxi companies will allow you to “pre-order” a ride home so that you are not stuck waiting for a ride home during peak times. In addition, popular Apps such as Uber, Uber X, and Lyft offer quick, reliable, and affordable alternative ride solutions when finding a taxi can be burdensome.

In addition, the state of Colorado received a $400,000 Federal Grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration geared towards training more law enforcement officers in the area of marijuana-impaired driving. Currently, there are only 185 specifically trained drug recognition experts spread among Colorado’s law enforcement agencies statewide. With this grant money, you can expect the number of trained drug recognition experts to increase (Officials are hoping the federal funding will cover training for an additional 35 officers), as well as an increase in the number of DUIDs (Driving while Under the Influence of Drugs). Some of this money is also going to be spent on a public awareness campaign going towards television advertising, billboards, and posters all warning of the dangers of impaired driving.

Failure to Register As a Sex Offender Charges in CO (Part 2)

Individuals who are convicted of failing to register as sex offenders in Colorado can face prison time and expensive fines.

Individuals who are convicted of failing to register as sex offenders in Colorado can face prison time and expensive fines.

Continuing from Failure to Register As a Sex Offender Charges in CO (Part 1), in the following, we will continue our discussion regarding “failure to register as a sex offender” criminal charges.

When Failure to Register Charges Can Be Filed…

Some of the specific instances in which failure to register as a sex offender charges may be filed against a person include if or when that individual allegedly:

  • Fails to register with all law enforcement agencies in all of the cities or counties in which he resides, works and/or attends school (even when he sets up a new residence, gets a new job and/or enrolls in a new school)
  • Provides false information to the law enforcement agencies with which he’s required to register
  • Doesn’t fully or properly complete the forms associated with registering
  • Doesn’t provide all of the aliases he has been known to use in the past when registering
  • Fails to provide a current photograph of himself or a current set of fingerprints when registering
  • Fails to cancel former registration forms submitted to law enforcement agencies in cities he no longer lives in after having moved away from that jurisdiction
  • Fails to register all of the email addresses that he uses or may have used in the past
  • Fails to register all of the vehicles he owns – including trailers and/or motor homes.

If a person is accused of failing to register as a sex offender for any reason, then he can face a:

  • Class 6 “failure to register” felony charge, which can be punishable by up to 18 months in prison and fines of at least $100 upon conviction.
  • Class 5 felony charge if he has a previous conviction associated with “failure to register” charges – Class 5 felony charges can be punishable by up to 3 years in prison (and fines of at least $1,000) upon conviction.

Failure to Register As a Sex Offender Charges in CO (Part 1)

Posted on: January 17th, 2014
Failure to register charges can be filed against convicted sex offenders who violate any of the rules for registering as sex offenders in Colorado.

Failure to register charges can be filed against convicted sex offenders who violate any of the rules for registering as sex offenders in Colorado.

When a person is convicted of a sex crime, in many cases, part of the terms of his sentence will require him to register as a sex offender with the Colorado sex offender registry for some specific period of time. While some people may intentionally choose to violate this term of their sentence and, consequently, be hit with “failure to register” criminal charges, in other cases, people may slapped with these charges for mistakenly or unintentionally failing to abide by the very strict rules associated with registering as a sex offender.

Rules for Registering As a Sex Offender in Colorado 

In order to know when “failure to register” criminal charges can be filed, it’s first important to know what the specific rules for registration are. According to the Colorado sex offender registry website, individuals who are ordered by the courts to register as sex offenders in the state MUST:

  • Register with the law enforcement agency (e.g., the police department, sheriff’s office, etc.) that has jurisdiction over the community in which the individual lives, works and/or attends school
  • Reregister with the appropriate law enforcement agency whenever he moves and sets up a new residence within Colorado within 5 business days of establishing the new residence
  • Provide, upon registration:
    • His full and proper name
    • Any and all aliases that he is known (or has been known) by
    • His address
    • His fingerprints
    • His birthdate
    • A list of the crimes for which he has been convicted
    • In some cases, a current photograph (depending on the specific agency).

This is not a complete list of the necessary requirements for registering as a sex offender in Colorado; therefore, individuals who are required to register should make sure that they are fully aware of (and comply with) all of the requirements in order to avoid being charged with “failure to register.”

Check out our forthcoming second part of this blog for some specific examples of when failure to register charges may be filed, as well as some of the penalties that can be enforced if a person is convicted of failing to register as a sex offender in Colorado.

New Colorado DUI Laws Take Effect January 1, 2014

Posted on: December 30th, 2013

Every year in Colorado nearly 30,000 people are arrested for driving under the influence. As part of the arrest process, a police officer will give each driver an “Express Consent Advisement.” This advisement informs the driver that because they are under arrest for DUI, the law requires that they take a blood or breath test. If a driver declines the test, then they will face a mandatory one year suspension of their driver’s license with no early reinstatement. Despite this advisement, nearly 3 out of 10 suspected drunk drivers refuse to take a test. (This requirement applies only to the official breath or blood test at the police station and not to the PBT, which remains voluntary).

Under the current law, a driver who refuses a test faces a mandatory one year license revocation with no option for early reinstatement. However, as of January 1, 2014, this will change. Under a new law, a driver who refuses will still face a one year revocation, but they will be eligible to reinstate with an interlock device after serving 60 days of the one year revocation.

Second, the new law will change the revocation period for a refusal and a DUI conviction. The current law requires that a DUI revocation and a refusal revocation run consecutively. This means that a refusal followed by a DUI conviction will result in a 12 month revocation for the refusal followed by another 9 months for the DUI revocation for a total of 21 months. However, a driver is eligible for reinstatement with an interlock device during the 9 month DUI revocation. The new law will change this so that a refusal revocation will run concurrently with a DUI conviction. This means that no additional time will be added to a revocation if a driver refuses and is later convicted of DUI.

This new law will significantly change how DUI refusal cases are treated by defense attorneys and prosecutors. Currently, many refusal cases are pled down to DWAI in order to avoid the second consecutive revocation for a DUI conviction. However, if this is no longer a factor, more DUI refusal cases may go to trial because the added revocation is no longer factor to consider in plea bargaining.

Finally, it is important to remember that every case is different and you should consult a lawyer before going to court after a DUI arrest. This is especially true if you have one or more prior DUI arrests. The laws governing a Colorado driver’s license are complicated. A skilled DUI lawyer can help you avoid many of the collateral consequences to your driver’s license. 

Tips for Avoiding a DUI This New Year’s (Part 2)

Posted on: December 26th, 2013
The best way to avoid a DUI this New Year’s is to find ways to avoid driving if you plan on drinking. Some ideas include taking cabs and finding places to stay.

The best way to avoid a DUI this New Year’s is to find ways to avoid driving if you plan on drinking. Some ideas include taking cabs and finding places to stay.

Concluding the two-part blog Tips for Avoiding a DUI This New Year’s (Part 1), the following are some additional tips that can help you and your loved ones minimize your chances of being arrested for and accused of drunk driving this holiday season.

  • Schedule a taxi cab to take you home – Given the number of people who are out partying on New Year’s Eve, it can be hard to schedule or count on a cab to take you home – especially if you plan on closing the bar and are looking for a cab around 2 am. However, if you can schedule a cab (or car service), then do so to ensure that you have a ride home after a night of drinking.
  • Take public transportation (if it’s an option) – If the buses or other sources of public transportation are operating late night on New Year’s Eve and the run close to your home, then plan on using this source of transportation to get around on New Year’s Eve.
  • Find a place to stay – If you are going to a friend’s or family member’s house to attend a party, consider asking if you can stay the night at their home if you plan on drinking alcohol and are having problems arranging for a ride home. If you are not comfortable with this arrangement or for some reason are unable to stay at their home, consider getting a motel or hotel room at an establishment close to the party venue. Even if it costs you $200 to stay one night, this is still less than a DUI would cost.

  • Don’t drink if you have to drive – The bottom line is that, if you have to drive yourself home after attending a party, you should choose not to drink any alcohol at the event. While you may have a little less fun not enjoying some cocktails with your friends, one night of boozing is likely not worth the years of penalties you may face if you are arrested for and convicted of a DUI.

Tips for Avoiding a DUI This New Year’s (Part 1)

Posted on: December 23rd, 2013
Here are some tips that can help you minimize your chances of being arrested for DUI this New Year’s Eve.

Here are some tips that can help you minimize your chances of being arrested for DUI this New Year’s Eve.

While New Year’s Eve is an exciting time to celebrate the end of one year and the potential of the year to come, it’s also a prime time for law enforcement officials in Colorado to target drivers for DUI. In fact, the Colorado Department of Transportation has been overseeing a year-long campaign known as the “Heat is On,” which is focused on increasing DUI enforcement on and around specific holidays – including July 4th, Labor Day, Christmas and New Year’s. During these holidays, far more law enforcement officials are patrolling the streets, setting up DUI checkpoints and generally looking to make DUI arrests.

Given this increased focus on making DUI arrests over the holidays, it’s crucial that all drivers in Colorado take some precautions to minimize their chances of getting arrested for drunk driving over New Year’s. The following are some tips for avoiding a DUI this holiday season:

  • Keep the party at home – Instead of going out this year, consider hosting a party with family and/or close friends at your place. This can totally cut out the need to arrange for transportation on one of the biggest party nights of the year.

    If you do plan on hosting a party for your loved ones, consider offering some of them a place to stay for the evening if you think they will be drinking alcohol and if it may be an issue trying to arrange for transportation to get them home after the party – after all, sleeping on a couch is a much better option than sleeping in a jail cell.

  • Arrange for a designated driver – If you do plan on going to a party and you plan on drinking ANY alcohol, make sure that you have a designed driver who will take you home after the party. If you are not driving after you have been drinking, you can’t get a DUI.

For more tips on what you can do to reduce your chances of getting a DUI this New Year’s Eve, be sure to check out the upcoming Part 2 of this blog.
