Colorado Drug Offenses and Penalties
In 2013, the Colorado Legislature reclassified drug crimes and created drug felonies (DF1, DF2, DF3, and DF4), drug misdemeanors (DM1-DM2) and drug petty offenses. The intent of the new drug laws in Colorado is to lessen the harsh consequences of previous laws.
Colorado drug crime offenses can range from possession, distribution, and trafficking with different consequences for each charge. Distribution cases can include methamphetamine, marijuana, ecstasy (MDMA), heroin, prescription drugs, and many other scheduled controlled substances.
A conviction for a drug offense in Colorado can result in minimum mandatory prison sentence. Other sentences range from jail to probation depending on the facts of the case and offense type. It is important to contact a Denver defense attorney to get started on your case.
