Consequences Of Drug Possession Charges in Colorado

The consequences for drug possession can range from misdemeanor to felony offenses. While felonies are more serious than misdemeanor offenses, misdemeanors can have significant punishments—especially if you have a criminal record or prior convictions on your record for drug offenses.

Whether you are caught with marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or without a prescription for a medication, the consequences for the offense will likely be mitigated if you work with an experienced lawyer. There are a variety of different factors that affect the charge and the penalties facing you, such as the type of drug and the quantity.

Depending on the nature of the offense, you could face the following consequences if you are convicted:

  • Suspension of your license
  • Time in jail or prison
  • Significant legal fines
  • Required counseling
