WILL MARIJUANA "BREATHALYZERS" EVER BE EMPLOYED IN COLORADO DUI CASES?
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, November, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
When Colorado voters approved a constitutional amendment last year legalizing the recreational use of small amounts of marijuana, they were likely unaware of just how far-reaching and significant this decision was. Not only did the vote make Colorado one of only two states in the U.S. in which the possession and use of small amounts of marijuana is legal, but it also required lawmakers to pass several additional laws accounting for this decriminalization - such as the laws related to driving under the influence.
For instance, Colorado lawmakers were ultimately charged with the task of determining limits for marijuana use prior to driving - similar, conceptually, to the limits placed upon the consumption of alcohol before getting behind the wheel. And, while the limits established by the legislature have stirred much debate among Colorado marijuana users, a new marijuana "breathalyzer" test currently being developed may be able to quell some of the worries.
Colorado laws related to driving under the influence of Marijuana
Prior the decriminalization of marijuana in Colorado, there were no established presumed limits for what constituted "under the influence" of the drug in Colorado DUI cases. However, lawmakers recently passed legislation dictating that a Colorado driver will be presumed to be driving under the influence of drugs (DUID) if his or her blood contains "five nanograms or more" of THC - the active ingredient in marijuana - per milliliter of blood.
Obviously, the primary way of testing for THC in these circumstances is to test a driver's blood, which is where much of the controversy regarding the new DUID laws begins. For example, since THC is absorbed into the body's fatty tissue, it is possible that it can remain in a user's blood for a significant time after the effects of the marijuana have dissipated. Indeed, in one study involving 25 participants, six people still tested positive for active levels of THC a full week after stopping marijuana use.
Therefore, people who used marijuana regularly, such as those prescribed medical marijuana, may never actually be under the newly established five-nanogram limit - meaning that any time they operate a car they may be in violation of the law, even though they may not be actually impaired at the time.

Iowa Family 'Stuck In Colorado'
Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
A former Iowa family left the state for Colorado hoping to find a derivative of medical marijuana that could help their daughter.
Now they say those treatments will keep them from coming back to visit family and friends.
Last month we introduced you to the Selmeski’s and the fight their little girl is facing.
Maggie is 17 months old but started having seizures when she was just six weeks old.
Maggie suffers from infantile spasms and has more than 500 seizures a day.
After seeing little results with seizure medication, the family decided to move to Colorado and try medical marijuana.
“Overall Maggie`s very lethargic and somewhat disengaged but since we started the cannabis oil we have seen her waking up and become a little more engaged with things,” says Maggie’s Mom Rachel Selmeski by phone.
Maggie is one of 93 children in Colorado receiving a low dose of an oil based marijuana called Charlotte’s Web.
It’s low in THC and high in CBD, which means it doesn’t produce a ‘high’ but still has the portion of the plant valued for medicinal use.
“We actually started out low then we`ll gradually work our way up to try and find the best therapeutic dose for her,” says Selmeski.
Selmeski says they would like to be able to visit their friends and family in Iowa but won’t be able to leave Colorado.
