Asserting a strong defense against drug charges

Criminal charges can be rather costly. This not only refers to the costs associated with asserting a defense against the charges, but also encompasses the damages the allegations can have on a person's life. Drug crimes can have a lasting effect on the accused's life, which makes it imperative that individuals in Colorado understand their defense options.

New law in Colorado makes certain drug crimes misdemeanors

Most people in Colorado would agree that certain drugs, like fentanyl, heroin and cocaine are dangerous. For this reason, these drugs are classified as Schedule I or Schedule II drugs, meaning that drug charges involving these substances are more serious than charges for other drugs. However, a new bill has been signed into law that would change the way these substances are treated when it comes to drug crimes.

Colorado House passes bill reducing penalty for drug possession

Colorado is often seen as a pioneer in drug decriminalization efforts, having been the first state in the nation to legalize the recreational use of small amounts of marijuana. A bill recently passed by both the Colorado House and Senate addresses the penalization of certain drug charges that could have a significant effect on Colorado residents.

Bill would reduce penalties for drug possession in Colorado

There have been movements across the nation to decriminalize certain drug offenses, or even make possession of certain drugs lawful under certain circumstances. Colorado is one of the leaders in this initiative after it legalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana in 2014. However, some lawmakers want to take such initiatives a step further.

Protect yourself from the harsh consequences of drug charges

Drug offenses are some of the most frequently charged crimes in Colorado. Whether they are possession charges, trafficking charges or manufacturing charges, it goes without saying that a conviction for drug charges could lead to years behind bars. But, your troubles won't end there. Even if you aren't convicted, simply being charged with a drug crime can damage your reputation.

Heroin can lead to federal drug charges; what about cough syrup?

While most people in Colorado know that it is illegal to possess dangerous street drugs, they may be surprised to find out that, under certain circumstances, it is illegal to possess seemingly innocuous drugs, like cough syrup. Federal law recognizes that some drugs are extremely detrimental to one's health and welfare. Thus, when it comes to drug charges, it is important to understand how federal law classifies various drugs based on the danger they pose.

Traffic stop in Colorado leads to drug charges against motorist

Sometimes, being pulled over for a traffic infraction can make a person nervous. This may be especially true if the officer asks the motorist if they can search the vehicle. A person may not know whether they should consent to such a search. As one recent example shows, these incidents can lead to serious criminal charges.

Those growing marijuana in their home can still face drug charges

Marijuana cultivation, subject to limitations, has been permitted in Colorado for several years now. This has been beneficial to many Coloradans, especially those who use the drug medicinally. However, residents can still face drug charges involving marijuana, particularly with regard to the amount of the drug they grow in their own home.
