Too high to drive?

A new app could reduce the risk of seeing Denver police car lights flashing in your rearview mirror. Makers of MyCanary say the app helps cannabis users determine their impairment levels before they get behind the wheel.

More than 10,000 people have downloaded the application since its July launch. It uses four games to measure marijuana impairment before they drive or use power tools or engage in other activities in which impairment increases risk.

Of course, the $5 app available in the iTunes store is not a guarantee against a DUID (driving under the influence of drugs) arrest. But it can help you assess your mental and physical performance levels after cannabis consumption. When you’re not under the influence, you take the tests of memory, reaction times, perception and balance to create a baseline.

After consumption, you take the tests to see to what level your abilities might have eroded while under the influence, a news report states.

The four tests take about two minutes to complete, according to the app developer’s website.

For those facing DUID charges involving marijuana consumption, a Colorado attorney with experience in negotiating favorable plea deals and in courtroom defense can be invaluable. Because the penalties for driving while impaired by drugs are just as tough as the ones for driving under the influence of alcohol, you should enter the criminal justice system with legal help to match.

The DUID defense attorneys of Shazam Kianpour & Associates, P.C. fights for the rights and freedoms of residents of not only Denver County, but also Jefferson County, El Paso County and others.
