Colorado Campaign Against Stoned Drivers Begins Today

The Colorado Department of Transportation is launching its “Drive High, Get a DUI” campaign today, targeting marijuana-impaired drivers with both increased funds for law enforcement and a publicity surge, including radio and TV ads across the state, warning of the consequences.

In addition, at least twenty state troopers have completed drug recognition courses and are, no doubt, anxious to employ that training on Colorado’s highways.

The campaign comes in the wake of a statement from Colorado Police Chiefs to the governor, complaining that they have already diverted staff and funds from other operations into marijuana enforcement, “leaving gaps in other service areas.” The police are requesting more funds for training officers as well as oral fluid testing equipment to be used at checkpoints.
