While possessing illicit drugs, otherwise known as “controlled dangerous
substances” (CDS) in Colorado, is punishable by severe penalties,
selling these substances without authorization is heavily prosecuted.
The same can be said for possessing CDS while having the intention to
sell them. These CDS can include more common compounds, such as cocaine
and marijuana, but also more rare and dangerous drugs.
When you are accused of selling CDS, skilled representation from a Arapahoe
County criminal defense attorney who is experienced in
drug crimes is vital to preserving your name and your freedoms. Attorney Joseph A.
