    I'm still trying to find an actual Colorado Statute pertaining to the Felony Possession with alcohol in your system... at this point it really is hear say, though in my opinion credible. I've put a few calls in to some people who can get me more information on this law if any exists, at that, if it's debunk I apologize in advance. I do recall hysterics following the incident mentioned, it wouldn't be surprising in the least if a statute to that nature was enacted or about to be enacted. The only "published" law I can find right now is the current statute which states "under the influence."

    Yeah I went and tried to fact check it too. Couldn't find it. But I distinctly remember seeing something recently that contradicted the state law regarding "under the influence" and it made me re read.

    All,

    Thank you! This "Lay of the land" is exactly what I was looking for! I had looked at the Rocky Mountain site and even the State site, but was having a hard time reading past the writing to figure out what was actually being practices.

    The "UI" is so ambiguous, I prefer "any" or a measurable, ascertainable level to quantify.

Sourced from several police officers I work with and know. This applies to civilians and sworn police officers. Colorado Bureau of Investigation has a print out of Colorado laws regarding CCW.
    Not to hijack the thread, but please elaborate. I lived in CO, travel back now & then and plan (hope) to move back from the Land of Oz. Does this apply to one's home as well (i.e., a beer with dinner = felony if I need to defend myself)? Thanks. "We now return to your regularly scheduled program, already in progress."

    Just got off the phone with a rude security guy at Childrens Hospital Colorado. He says that signs are posted at every entrance. Drove by Longmont United Hospital and the signs were on the doors. Just can't teach some people I guess. Anyway, I can only hope that THIS LAW THINGY keeps me safe tomorrow for visit.

    If you are planning on going to CU's hospital, don't carry. According to RMGO, "However, then Attorney General Ken Salazar wrote an opinion that, since the Regents to the University of Colorado are a constitutional office and have powers to govern that university, they may ban concealed carry on their campuses. As of the writing of this document, all of CU's campuses have a ban on concealed carry."
