Drug Manufacturing Charges in Colorado
Fight with a Denver Drug Crimes Lawyer
Colorado laws have made it illegal to knowingly manufacture, cultivate, or create any form of controlled dangerous substance under Revised Statute § 18-18-405. This is the same statute that makes drug possession, drug sales, or possession with the intent to sell illegal. While it has become legal to cultivate up to six marijuana plants for personal use, manufacturing of other drugs is still heavily prosecuted with serious penalties if you are convicted.

Marijuana Cultivation Laws
As stated previously, Colorado does allow you to cultivate up to six plants for personal use, but there are a number of laws you must follow when doing so. If you are found to be cultivating plants for sale without authorization, you can still be charged with a drug crime.
Other Drug Manufacturing Laws
- Manufacturing a controlled dangerous substance is charged based on a few contributing factors, including:
- The type of substance
- The amount manufactured
- Your intent in manufacture
Manufacturing a schedule V substance (including buprenorphine) is considered to be a class 1 misdemeanor, while all other schedules are automatically classified as drug felonies, beginning at level 3.
