Colorado law has some unique provisions pertaining drug possession, illegal distribution of drugs, and drug trafficking cases. Where guns or other dangerous weapons are involved, or where large quantities of drug are seized, or if the crime occurs in close proximity to a school, the consequences of a conviction can be much harsher and may have a mandatory DOC sentencing component.
At Seawell & Buckmelter, PC, we understand how drug cases are prosecuted in Colorado. As criminal defense attorneys, we have each spent many years of practice litigating drug cases, first in state prosecutors’ offices, and since then defending against drug cases in our private criminal defense practice. We handle all state court drug charges involving all types of drugs:
- Marijuana (including cultivation)
- Methamphetamines (including manufacturing and meth labs)
Juvenile Drug Charges
We also defend juveniles who have been charged for misdemeanors or felonies that involve drug possession or illegal distribution. Drug charges against teens, even if adjudicated in juvenile court, could have terrible consequences for those who are looking to go on to college. Some laws keep individuals with convictions for drug offenses from obtaining student loans. If you are a parent of a teen who has been arrested, cited, or suspended from school on accusations of possession of drugs, do not wait.
