The bill also allows for DUI defendants to "offer direct and circumstantial evidence that there is a disparity between what any tests show and other facts." This evidence can include expert and non-expert testimony.
Aurora Representative Rhonda Fields says she will be co-sponsoring the legislation when the Colorado General Assembly convenes in January. "It's about public safety," she says. "I want our streets to be safe. With the passing of Amendment 64, we need to have some standards in place so people don't think they can smoke and get behind a wheel and drive. We have a standard for alcohol; we need to have a standard for THC limits."
