Defending You Against Drug Distribution Charges
Both Colorado lawmakers and Denver-area law enforcement officials believe drug distribution and manufacturing to be big problems in our state. The result of all of this anti-drug sentiment is that we have aggressive police and prosecutors, and harsh legal penalties for drug trafficking and manufacture. Even cultivation crimes can include significant prison time, even though you may have a medical marijuana card.
Though the words “distribution” and “trafficking” conjure images of cars, trucks and state borders, drug distribution is a drug-related crime most often done on a small, local scale. Either way, legal consequences are severe.
A Typical Case
A typical drug distribution case might look something like this. A guy buys pot from a friend. Another friend asks the guy to get him some. They meet in a parking lot or other ordinary location and the pot is shared. This same scenario happens again, but this time 1) police are watching and, 2) money is exchanged to lessen the expense. “Helping a friend” is now deemed “distributing drugs.”
The next thing you know, officers from the Metro Drug Task Force are coming into your home, or detaining you in your car and asking questions about whom you deal to, or whom you buy from. They say if you don’t talk to them or give them three names that they are going to charge you with felony drug charges. Do you talk to them? Do you not talk to them? Make your decision easy; call us and we’ll do the heavy lifting so you don’t have to.
