What Are the Penalties for Possession of Cocaine & Other Drugs in Colorado?

Possession of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or without a prescription for a medication, you could face consequences including:

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

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. Additionally, 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.
