Palcohol or “Powdered Alcohol” – coming to a liquor store near you!

Posted on: April 23rd, 2014

Earlier this week, the United States Alcohol & Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau granted approval for a new form of alcohol named, Palcohol. This new product is an alcohol powder that is currently set to debut in four convenient flavors – Lemon Drop, Mojito, Powderita (supposedly takes just like a margarita), and Cosmopolitan. Invented by an avid sportsman on the go, Mark Phillips, who wanted to have an alcoholic drink when he was backpacking and didn’t want to have to pack around the extra liquor or bottles. So, with a little bit of research and science, he was able to invent the first powdered form of alcohol that only needs some water or liquid to create an alcoholic drink with an equal alcohol content as its real alcohol mixed counterpart. As stated from the Q&A section of the Palcohol website, “What is the alcoholic content when consuming it? Palcohol, when used as directed, by adding five ounces of liquid to it, is equal to a standard mixed drink.” Palcohol is set to debut sometime this fall and will be sold wherever you can find liquor and other alcoholic beverages.

 Not only will this new form of alcohol be convenient and easy to transport, but it will also come with a whole new set of questions by law enforcement and government officials on how to regulate it. Since it is a powder, yet carries the same amount of alcohol percentage by volume as its normal mixed drink counterpart, one would expect that Palcohol would apply to the open container law here in Colorado. In addition, because of its easy transportability due to its powdered form, there are new growing concerns regarding screening criteria with the TSA and security regulated events such as concerts and public events. 

Additionally, the makers of Palcohol have stated that they have been experimenting with mixing the powdered alcohol into different food forms for an added “alcoholic kick”. Such creations they have been experimenting with include the Powderita flavor in guacamole and the Cosmopolitan flavor on a salad. While it certainly will create an alcoholic form of food, it is good to remember to drink (or in this case, remember to eat) responsibly and to plan out a safe ride solution if you are going to partake.

Red Light Cameras – Public Safety or New Revenue Source?

Posted on: April 22nd, 2014

A new bill sponsored by House Speaker, Mark Ferrandino is aimed at eliminating red light cameras throughout the state of Colorado. It has been argued that the reason the cameras were implemented in the first place was for local governments to generate and collect revenue through indirect taxation; and that the red light cameras really don’t influence an individual’s decision to run a red light or not and are an invasion of one’s privacy. Additionally, the red light cameras are operated by third party vendors who oftentimes collect as much as 45% of the revenue brought in. Opponents of the bill argue that the cameras still deter some individuals from running red lights and make the streets safer. The bill passed the Colorado Senate yesterday with a vote of 21-14, sending it now to the Colorado House.

There has been a widespread controversy over red light cameras since dozens of them started popping up around cities back in 2009. One problem with the cameras is that they will still capture and ticket an individual that is stopped just over the ‘Do Not Cross’ line, even when the car has come to a complete stop. In other instances, the cameras were taking pictures pre-maturely and innocent individuals were again ticketed. Lastly, and probably the most important issue behind red light cameras, is proving who was behind the wheel when the infraction occurred. Let’s say a family member or friend takes your car out for a spin to run an errand and gets an infraction. Or maybe it’s your significant other who was speeding a few miles over the speed limit because they couldn’t wait to see you. Your rights as a U.S. citizen state that you do not have to snitch on your family member or friend. So then, who should be responsible for paying the ticket? Well, the current system for ticketing it to be sent to whomever the vehicle is registered to and thus has led to a slew of unfortunate circumstances. Furthermore, red light ticket enforcement has been somewhat lax in the past and both local government and law enforcement agencies have relied on fear tactics to collect payment, sometimes illegally involving collection agencies to try and collect.

While the red light camera systems are still legal and operational for the time being, if you happen to receive a citation in the mail, call attorney Jared Adams at (720) 333-9490 for a free consultation on what to do. I have helped litigate these tickets and may be able to help you in your case!

Earth Day 2014

Posted on: April 22nd, 2014

Today, April 22, 2014, is Earth Day! So… what exactly is Earth Day you may be asking? Well, since it was first proposed 1970, April 22nd is a day to celebrate the Earth and the concept of peace, and is thusly termed ‘Earth Day’. In 1990, the then U.S. Holiday went international and is now celebrated and have organized scheduled events in more than 141 nations and involve more than 200 million people! In addition, since 24 hours is such a short amount of time to celebrate the Earth, more and more countries around the globe are celebrating ‘Earth Week’, dedicating an entire 7 days to activities focused on environmental issues. In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency is focused on empowering Americans throughout the country to make an impact on climate change through the action of simple changes to help reduce their carbon footprint in their daily lives.

The annual celebration continues in Denver, Colorado, whose local government is holding a free festival today in the Wellington Webb Municipal Atrium at 201 W. Colfax Ave. from 10:00am to 2:00pm local time. Not only does the festival hold a zero waste policy to all vendors and exhibitors participating, but is also a completely solar powered event! It is also completely free for all to participate and attend (vendors, exhibitors, and visitors)! So what exactly does ‘zero waste’ stipulate? It means that all handouts and items given out must be able to be reused, locally recycled, or composted in some form or another.

In addition, there are several other Earth Week events scheduled throughout the Denver-metro area. One popular event (aside from the Earth Day Festival) is a Yelp! and a B-Cycle Sponsored event that is taking place throughout the Cherry Creek North Business District on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 5:30pm. Cyclists throughout the Denver-metro area are invited to meet at the Cherry Creek B-Cycle Station located on the SW corner of 3rd Ave. and Milwaukee St. to receive several special offers, discounts, giveaways, and a goodie bag from local businesses. Participants are then asked to walk or ride their bike to several local businesses in Cherry Creek area and will receive special event pricing and discounts on food, drinks, and merchandise.

Admission into the Denver Botanical Gardens on York Street is also free today only in celebration of Earth Day!

Happy Spring! We hope you and you loved ones are able to enjoy the local celebrations happened this week and to remember to be conscious of your carbon footprint to help save the Earth for generations to come!

Happy Easter and errrrr Happy 4/20?

Posted on: April 22nd, 2014

For many who didn’t know, Sunday was not only Easter, but also 4/20 – a significant holiday in the marijuana world. This counterculture holiday is celebrated throughout North America and with the recent legalization of marijuana in Denver, the holiday is starting to become more mainstream. This year’s celebrations in Denver, Colorado were held throughout the city, with the largest gathering of individuals taking place in Civic Center Park. In addition, the annual High Times Cannabis Cup was held in north Denver at the Denver Mart, was sold out at 40,000 tickets, and offered several samples of marijuana and allowed smoking at the event.

While years’ past Civic Center Park gatherings were northing more than a mass protest, this year’s event was granted a permit from the city, and offered an increase in security and vendors. In addition, while most individuals at Civic Center Park partaking in the illegal public consumption of marijuana got away with their “daring” deed, there were still hundreds who were less fortunate citywide. At the Civic Center Park gathering, Denver police ticketed 47 individuals by late afternoon for consuming marijuana in public (mostly on the outskirts of the festival). Compared to last year’s event, in which Denver police only ticketed five individuals, this year’s ticket increase was due in part to a recent campaign and effort by Denver police to remind the public that it is still illegal to smoke or consume marijuana in public. For reference, a ticket for consumption of marijuana in public is a civil fine of around $150. Ticketed individuals were also met with the advice to, “Go into the crowds where we can’t pick you out. While possession and marijuana use is still legal for adults to use, it is still illegal to use in public.” Also, Denver Police tweeted throughout the day with several warnings aimed at park attendees to follow the law and not consume marijuana in public.

Furthermore, the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Colorado State Patrol teamed up for an increase in law enforcement presence to catch high drivers. According to a press release from CDOT, “While marijuana consumption is legal in Colorado, said marijuana consumption is not allowed in public or in your vehicle.” CDOT and law enforcement agencies were also targeting individuals for the open container law, which applies to both alcohol and marijuana. For marijuana, it must be sealed and not be in the passenger area of a vehicle.

Steps of a Colorado DMV Hearing for a DUI

Posted on: April 16th, 2014

More than likely, you have found this post in search of some answers due to a recent DUI of yours or someone close to you. Chances are, it is your first offense – maybe even your first major offense aside from a minor speeding or traffic ticket. Regardless of your history, I want to map out some of the basics and the overall process when it comes to a DUI and what you should do.

First and foremost, call an attorney! It is not only important to call an attorney who specializes in DUI, but equally as important to get in touch with an attorney, so that you can get help in your case right away. I provide free consultations to anyone who calls me and can give you some necessary information and advice on your case. Call now (720) 333-9490 to speak directly with an experienced DUI attorney. Every case and situation is different, and there may be some key information to helping you beat your charges and having the charges dismissed or reduced.

Next, it is important to understand that you are facing two separate suits related to your DUI. The first is the criminal side with the state of Colorado. The second suit is on the civil side with the DMV. The results in one suit do not control the results of the other. The issues are different in each suit and there are different defenses that apply at each. This article focuses only on the basic steps of a DMV hearing following a DUI.

If you refused a chemical test or you submitted a breath test, you have 7 physical days from your arrest to request an administrative hearing with the DMV in regards to your driver’s license. 7 Days! If you submitted to blood test, you will receive a letter in the mail from the DMV when the test results come back. This letter will give you a deadline to request your hearing. If you care about having a driver’s license and would like a chance to save it, you must do this within the timeframe set by law. Hiring an experienced attorney will help you schedule this hearing, as well as fight for your wellbeing to keep your driver’s license.

Once the hearing is scheduled, the DMV will send either you or your lawyer (or sometimes both) what is called an “Express Consent Packet” (or EC Packet). The EC Packet contains all of the police reports and other documents related to your arrest that the DMV will consider when deciding to revoke your license. Send a copy of this to your lawyer as soon as you receive it so she/he may review to identify potential issues and defenses for your hearing.

Next, you will receive a second letter from the DMV with the actual date of your hearing. Again, give this to your lawyer as soon as you receive it. Once you have the date of your hearing, you and/or your lawyer can begin to request subpoenas. Subpoenas can be to compel the attendance of other witnesses including other police officers who participated in the investigation and arrest. Subpoenas can also be for documents or video evidence that may support your defense. The DMV has strict rules that govern the issuance of subpoenas and these rules differ significantly from the rules in the criminal case.

In addition, an experienced attorney will ensure that the DMV exhausts their resources by having a Hearing Officer look over your arresting officer’s reports to ensure that all of the reporting and documentation was done properly and in the accordance with state laws and policies. They usually perform this task, BUT if they haven’t done the check AND the forms weren’t filled out properly, there is a chance that you may be able to get off due to a technicality on the arresting officer’s part and be able to keep your driver’s license. If you lose your license you may be able to reinstate early if you install an interlock device on your car. Your attorney will be able to help ensure that you reinstate as soon as possible. 

Finally, you must attend your hearing at the DMV (or over the phone). Telephonic hearings are becoming more common in Colorado, but many hearings are still conducted in person at a DMV office. At this hearing, your lawyer will raise defenses and issues that may lead to the dismissal of the action. However, at a minimum, the DMV hearing is an opportunity to cross examine the police officer and prepare a defense to the criminal case. 

Again, defending a DMV hearing after a DUI is complicated. Although may DMV hearings result in a revocation, there are defenses and tactics that a skilled lawyer may utilize to protect your driver’s license. Contact The Adams Law Firm today to learn how we can help fight to protect your license.

Drug and Alcohol Evaluations After a Colorado DUI

Posted on: April 16th, 2014

Following a DUI conviction, you are most likely going to have to attend drug and alcohol classes, as well as some sort of therapy or counseling. Also, depending on how well or poorly you performed on the drug and alcohol dependency examination administered by the probation department, you may have to submit to additional drug and alcohol testing. Use your better judgment when answering their questions and you should be fine.

Now keep in mind that you may walk into the exam thinking that you do not have an alcohol problem and that this test is going to be a piece of cake… But then you reveal to the counselor that after work you have a couple beers with some coworkers or have a glass of red wine most nights with dinner (for medicinal and health purposes obviously!). These seemingly normal behaviors can lead to a counselor asserting that you have an alcohol abuse problem and recommending an intensive outpatient treatment program. In addition, this decision will also most likely be seen by the courts and may have an impact on your sentencing. In addition, you can bet your bottom dollar that you are now going to have to attend numerous alcohol and drug classes, submit to multiple drug and alcohol tests, and spend way more money on these things that could be put to much better uses.

In addition, the counselor administering your test is going to look at everything in detail and I mean EVRYTHING. First and foremost dress the part. Think Easter Sunday church with grandma. If you show up in an explicit Cheech and Chong t-shirt and dreadlocked out, you are going to start your session full of preconceived notions. Next, be prepared to take a UA during your exam, so make sure that you are clean! If you need to, you can purchase an over the counter drug test from a local pharmacy to be sure. Lastly, do your research. If you do a quick internet search on ‘Alcohol Assessment Test’ you can learn a lot about the exam and some of the questions that you will be asked. Remember to use your better judgment as the counselor has the last and final say about whether or not you need continuing treatment. This is not the time to “impress” the counselor with your recent story about how you polished off a fifth of vodka last Thursday night or that you were the highest you have ever been in your life – and yes, these are some of the actual answers that have been given during this examination.

Lastly, as a condition of a deferred or an actual sentence, probation usually comes along with the package to ensure that you stay out of trouble during the time frame of your deferment. Make sure you read the form and stay out of trouble. The most common way for a defendant to lose a no-jail-sentence or a deferred judgment is to pick up another DUI.  Also, a condition of probation usually requires work or full time enrollment in schoool. If you lost your job due to unforeseen circumstances of your arrest or maybe you are unemployed, I highly recommend heading down to the local fast food joints, as well as passing out your resumé like wildfire!

Remember that this is a game – and one that if played strategically and properly can help yield you the best results possible. I know that this process is not only aggravating, but also very stressful, which is why I highly recommend obtaining legal counsel to help you through every step of the way. Call today and schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney – (720) 333-9490.

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. Contact attorney Jared Adams at 720-333-9490 to set up a free consultation. 

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.
