FORMER DEPUTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY
Charged with a Drug Crime?
A drug related crime is a criminal offense that involves the possession, use, sale, manufacture or distribution of an illegal narcotic. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) uses the Controlled Substance Act to provide information on criteria and classification for substances. In Colorado, illegal narcotics include: cocaine, heroin, LSD, marijuana, methamphetamine (meth), steroids, opium, and unauthorized prescription drugs. Drug crimes may be classified as a misdemeanors or felonies. The classification usually depends upon the type of drug involved, the amount of the drug under possession, and the type of drug crime committed.
Persons convicted of a drug crime may be punished with
imprisonment, fines, community service, probation, house arrest,
and court ordered drug treatment. Drug crime sentences may be
enhanced if the defendants have a prior criminal history, if there are prior drug crime convictions, or if they solicited the sale of drugs to minors.
