The Colorado State Patrol warns drivers that smoking or consuming marijuana will still get you a ticket if you drive.
Amendment 64 is now part of the Colorado Constitution, but law against driving under the influence of drugs are still in effect. "Drivers must realize that if you are stopped by law enforcement officials and it is determined that your ability to operate a motor vehicle has been affected to the slightest degree by drugs or alcohol or both, you may be arrested and subjected to prosecution under Colorado's DUI/DUID laws," said Colonel James Wolfinbarger, Chief of the Colorado State Patrol. "It is imperative that everyone takes responsibility for public safety when driving on Colorado's highways."
