Charges and Penalties for Distribution

Drug crimes such as distribution can be charged under both state and federal law. Penalties can be influenced by numerous factors such as a drug’s classification, the location of the alleged event, and a defendant’s past criminal history. Additionally, drug-related offenses often overlap, and without an aggressive defense, a person charged with distribution may also be facing charges such as possession. Depending on the amount of a drug in question, a defendant may also incur charges for drug trafficking. Protecting yourself from trumped up charges and ensuring that you are treated fairly in the eyes of the law begins with a call to our firm.

While Colorado’s drug laws follow federal regulations closely, numerous distinctions exist. For example, the State’s Amendment 64 legalized the possession of recreational marijuana in limited amounts by individuals 21 and older. Under the Federal controlled substance act, marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug, the category with the most severe penalties. If you have questions regarding your case, our attorneys can help you find the answers you need.
