Colorado Juries Keep Letting People Go for Driving on Weed, Prosecutors and Cops are Furious:
Citizens of Colorado are increasingly employing the use of jury nullification to keep innocents people out of cages – and it’s driving prosecutors CRAZY.
Adams County, CO — Colorado prosecutors are getting frustrated at jurors for daring to exercise rationality instead of blindly following the will of the State. A growing number of juries are acquitting people of driving under the influence of cannabis, even when tests show they are over the state’s legal blood-THC limit.
Since the recreational use of cannabis became legal, Colorado authorities are scrambling to apply rules and regulations to this new reality. They have established a 5 ng/ml blood-THC limit for operation of a motor vehicle, which seems to be arbitrary as there is no preponderance of data to support a specific number.
