Being Charged or Investigated for a Drug Crime in Colorado?
It is a myth that Colorado is going lighter on drug charges and arrests. In fact, police departments are still under pressure to arrest people for any time of drug possession. So, while marijuana is legalized under many circumstances, you can still get arrested if you don’t follow the specific rules for marijuana possession.
The same applies for other drugs. Cocaine, heroin, meth, molly, synthetics, prescription drugs, and other illegal substances are still the basis for large amounts of arrests in Colorado.
Drug Crimes are Taken Seriously
Although there has been some changes in how drug cases are treated in terms of sentencing, drug possession is still a crime. Prosecutors are still used to handling drug cases seriously, and while society’s views are slowly changing, district attorneys are still treating drug cases similarly to how they handled them in the past.
This means that you can still be charged for felony possession of drugs and can still face jail or prison time depending on the quantity seized and the factors such as a criminal record. Don’t assume that you will get a light sentence for a drug possession charge.
Convictions for a drug case can lead to serious consequences such as the loss of federal benefits and difficulty in living in certain housing.
If you are arrested for a drug case, do not talk to police. Instead, call a drug lawyer to help you through the process.
