Penalties for drug crimes can be very severe in Colorado. Drug charges are based upon:

  • Quantity
  • Intent to sell or distribute
  • Evidence of sales activity
  • Weapons possession or use
  • Having large amounts of money
  • Classification under the drug schedule
  • Purpose of the possession (personal use or for sale)

Unlike other jurisdictions, in Colorado any amount of cocaine possession is a felony. What this means is that district attorneys will charge even small (user) quantities as a felony. People who possess certain drugs such as cocaine for personal use can face possible felony conviction.
