What is Drug Possession?

Drug possession refers to the unlawful act of having controlled substances in your possession without a valid prescription. In Colorado, drug possession laws are strict and can result in severe consequences if convicted. Controlled substances may include illegal drugs such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana (if not possessed within the legal limits), prescription medications, and more.

What are the Penalties for Drug Possession in Colorado?

The penalties for drug possession in Colorado vary depending on the type and amount of the controlled substance involved. It's important to note that even simple possession charges can lead to life-altering consequences. Common penalties for drug possession may include:

  • Fines: Convictions for drug possession can lead to substantial fines, which can place a significant financial burden on individuals and their families.
  • Jail Time: Depending on the severity of the offense, jail sentences ranging from a few months to several years may be imposed.
  • Probation: In some cases, individuals may be placed on probation, which can come with strict conditions such as mandatory drug testing, counseling, and regular check-ins with a probation officer.
  • Criminal Record: A drug possession conviction can result in a permanent criminal record, making it difficult to secure employment, housing, and other opportunities in the future.
  • Driver's License Suspension: Convictions related to drug possession may also lead to a driver's license suspension, further impacting your daily life.

Defenses Against Drug Possession Charges

Some potential defenses against drug possession charges include:

  • Unlawful Search and Seizure: If law enforcement conducted an illegal search without proper justification, any evidence obtained during that search may be deemed inadmissible in court.
  • Lack of Possession: Prosecutors must prove that you held actual or constructive possession of the controlled substance. If there is doubt about your ownership or control of the drugs, it could weaken the case against you.
  • Medical Prescription: If you had a valid prescription for the medication found in your possession, it may serve as a valid defense against drug possession charges.
  • Entrapment: If law enforcement induced you to commit a drug-related offense that you would not have otherwise committed, entrapment could be a valid defense.
  • Crime Lab Analysis: Our team can scrutinize the confiscated substances' chain of custody and analysis procedures to ensure accuracy and reliability.
