Denver, CO DUI Lawyer Lashes Out At Law Enforcement’s THC Collection Methods

The Law Offices of Matthew J. Greife released a controversial article titled "Driving While High In Colorado & California", which may cause upset amongst prosecutors and law enforcement personnel.

Denver, United States - April 16, 2018 /PressCable/ —

DENVER, CO–The Law Offices of Matthew J. Greife has released a potentially controversial article “Driving While High In Colorado & California,” bringing some cause for concern, as the article may upset people who work for the government within the law and crime fields.

The 1,400 article examines two critical problems with law enforcement and crime lab’s methods of collecting and reporting data related to the level of THC in a person’s system. This article was written to bring to light the realities of law enforcement’s capabilities regarding the collection of THC levels in an individual’s body as well as expose the blatant ways prosecutors and police officers are thwarting the law in their pursuit of arresting people they believe may be driving while high in Colorado. In typical manner though, a certain element of the article is set to spark discontent amongst prosecutors, law enforcement personnel, and crime lab representatives.

Below is a portion of the piece, which neatly exemplifies the controversial element:

Only a blood, saliva, hair or urine test can detect THC, in your system. In Colorado and California law enforcement only uses a blood test to detect THC in your system – a breath test does not yet exist. More often than not, law enforcement will attempt to say the drivers they encounter have likely been drinking and the initial arrests are related to alcohol rather than the use of cannabis products. The reality here is that most police officers are trying to make arrests for alcohol with the hope of detecting THC later on because it is difficult, if not impossible, to simply talk with someone you’ve never met and know they have recently smoked a cannabis product unless you can smell it on them. It is even more difficult if the cannabis was consumed through food or liquid.

A spokesperson for The Law Offices of Matthew J. Greife, Matthew J. Greife, says “Of course The Law Offices of Matthew J. Greife never sets out to intentionally upset anybody. The aim of our articles is first and foremost to inform readers of the grievous injustices practiced in Colorado in regards to arrests related to driving while high. It is critical, however, that we stay dedicated to our true voice.

Although our ‘Driving While High In Colorado & California’ might unsettle people who work for the government in the law and crime fields, our duty is to our readers. We believe it’s more important to to keep Colorado citizens aware and informed of the things happening around them than to please everyone. Which is notoriously difficult to do.”

Although there has been no backlash as of yet, the possibility exists as the article criticizes prosecutors, law enforcement offices, and crime lab representatives for their refusal to act appropriately as required by the law and their continued practice of withholding their methods for constructing their data baselines, which means outside sources cannot validate their findings.

The Law Offices of Matthew J. Greife has been a provider of in-depth articles in the DUI Law / Law and Legal market for over a year.

The Law Offices of Matthew J. Greife has stated the future aims for the website are to provide citizens with the most accurate information regarding statutes that may have an impact on their lives one day. So The Law Offices of Matthew J. Greife hopes any controversy will pass quickly and re-emphasizes no offense is or was intended.
