With California and now Colorado legalizing marijuana use, Utah has seen a rise in metabolite DUIs, a type of driving impairment characterized by having traces of an illegal substance in your body while operating a vehicle. A lot of people are under the misconception that they cannot be arrested for using marijuana if they have obtained it legally in another state. This is false! Utah laws still prohibit people driving on Utah roads with any measurable amount of an illegal substance in their system, and marijuana is still illegal in Utah.
Metabolite DUI can also be the result of prescription drug use. Read more about this situation here.
