Since the state of Colorado passed a law allowing the use of medical marijuana, it is important to understand how this can affect DUI. The DUI law does not create a situation where medical marijuana users can never drive a car again, just as it does not create a situation where users of other prescription medications, such as pain killers or sleep aids, can never drive a car again. However, users of medical marijuana do need to be aware that they may be subject to DUI if they are driving at a time when their cognitive ability or physical ability is impaired.
