How are Drug Sales Charges Levied?
If you are found to be allegedly selling drugs, your charges will be levied based on the type of substance, the amount, where you are selling them, and who you are selling them to. Colorado classifies all controlled substances into one of five “schedules” based on any accepted medical uses, addiction risk, and dangerousness to overall health.
- Penalties for drug sales in Colorado can include:
- Jail time
- Community service
- Loss of rights
- Permanent criminal record
Selling schedule V substances is considered a Class 1 misdemeanor, while any other substance type is considered either a class 3, class 4, or class 5 felony, depending on the type of substance.
