Fighting Drug Manufacturing Charges in Arapahoe County
Begin Building Your Defense Today
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

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.
Don’t face your drug manufacturing or cultivation charges alone!
