Please remember that the state laws in Colorado may vary from that of the city/country you are coming from. Please ask me or your host family if you are unclear on any laws in this state. Just to give a few examples:
- Our legal drinking age is 21.
- Our drinking and driving law is very strict, so please be very smart if you consume any alcohol, DO NOT DRIVE!
- It is illegal to text while driving in Colorado.
- Smoking of marijuana is NOT legal on a federal level. Au pair signed an agreement upon committing to this program agreeing to abide by all local, state and federal laws. This means that should an au pair be caught/admits to smoking of marijuana, their program participation will be ended and they will need to return home. There are no exceptions to this rule.
