Even though marijuana has been partially legalized under Colorado law, people in the Longmont, Boulder County and Weld County areas still regularly find themselves on the wrong end of criminal charges related to that drug and others such as heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and methamphetamine. If you are up against drug charges, including the possession, distribution and manufacturing of a wide variety of narcotics and controlled substances, you need a knowledgeable and experienced attorney on your side. The firm of Flanders, Elsberg, Herber & Dunn, LLC has been defending clients in the Longmont area since 1871 and remains at the forefront of innovative criminal defense. We are committed to mounting a defense that protects your rights and your freedom.
Colorado is one of the few states in the nation that allow the purchase and consumption of marijuana for recreational use. While it is legal to buy and possess small amounts of the drug in the state, other laws still apply, and the penalties for violating those laws can be severe. Restrictions exist on:
A conviction could cause you to lose your job, your social standing or even future educational opportunities. You do not need to face these charges on your own. Our criminal law attorneys work hard to protect your rights.
While Colorado’s marijuana laws have been relaxed, the state continues to charge defendants with misdemeanor and felony crimes for the possession or sale of a variety of other controlled substances and narcotics. In Colorado, controlled dangerous substances (CDS) are divided into five “schedule” classes. The most serious penalties are associated with Schedule I substances such as heroin, LSD, ecstasy and synthetic opiates. Schedule II drug possession also comes with serious penalties. Drugs in this category include cocaine, opium, morphine, methamphetamines and methadone. Schedules III, IV and V include various pharmaceutical drugs that are illegal to possess without a prescription and illegal for individuals to sell.
If you are charged with a drug crime, the penalties vary depending on the schedule of the drug involved, your previous offenses and the specific crime you are accused of:
Each of these penalties is accompanied by the possibility of a fine that can range from $1,000 up to $1 million. The sale of most Schedule I, II, III or IV drugs can result in a felony charge, while most Schedule V drug sales result in misdemeanors. For help understanding the penalties associated with charges for possession, distribution, production or trafficking of illegal substances, consult our knowledgeable defense team.
