Fighting Drug Manufacturing Charges in Arapahoe County

Begin Building Your Defense Today

Possessing, trafficking, and selling illicit drugs, otherwise known as “controlled dangerous substances” (CDS) in Colorado, are all heavily prosecuted drug crimes. However, Colorado also has outlawed the manufacturing or cultivation of these substances as well. If you are found to be producing CDS in a manner that is prohibited by state law, you could find yourself facing serious charges and potentially steep penalties.

It is easy to become overwhelmed and stressed when you are facing drug manufacturing charges, which in most cases are considered a felony. Make the right choice; call my firm and allow me to help. My name is Joseph A. Lazarra of the Law Office of Joseph A. Lazzara, P.C., and I have over 25 years of experience assisting people who have found themselves facing the full extent of the law.

Marijuana Cultivation Laws

Colorado recently made the landmark decision to allow recreational marijuana to become legal under limited circumstances. This also does enable Colorado residents to grow their own plants for personal use, but only up to six plants; anything beyond that is considered a serious crime.

Criminal marijuana cultivation is determined by the following:

  • Under six plants: Cultivating fewer than six plants when under the age of 21 or for any reason other than personal use (or allowing it to be grown on your land for these reasons) is considered a class one misdemeanor
  • Between seven and 29 plants: Regardless of your intent, this is considered a class five felony
  • 30 or more plants, or conducting marijuana concentrate processing: Regardless of your intent, either of these activities are considered a class four felony

Penalties for criminal violations can vary between as little as $500, but as high as $500,000 in extreme cases! Similar penalties could be levied for manufacturing other chemical substances, such as methamphetamines, cocaine, or heroin, also carrying possible felony penalties.
