Marijuana Felony Possession, Smuggling & Sales

Possession of marijuana in small amounts (less than two ounces) is not a crime if 21 years or older. However, possession of more than two ounces can be either a misdemeanor or felony depending on the amount. Also, possession of any amount of marijuana is illegal if possessed with the intent to distribute it. Possession of more than six plants is probably a crime, depending on the number of plants allowed in medical marijuana paperwork. However, if the marijuana grow is in a residence, more than 12 plants can be a complicated situation where a person is charged with a felony and has to defend that allegation. Moving marijuana out of Colorado is always a crime and can have extremely dire consequences, especially if guns are involved (minimum prison sentence of eight years).

People Who Experiment with Drugs

Non-addict, simple possession cases—from marijuana to methamphetamines—will be treated by the law as “addict” cases. Prosecutors and police hear the overused phrase, “I was holding it for a friend.” When caught with drugs in their pants pockets, police often hear defendants say, ”those were not my pants.”

A skilled lawyer can help a defendant beat a true “mistaken fact” case where the defendant did not know about the drugs. However, that lawyer must have the ability to collect information and evidence to present to a prosecutor in negotiation, or to a jury if that negotiation fails.

People facing drug charges for experimenting with drugs deserve to be treated differently from those with a true drug problem. If you agree to drug counseling when you don’t have a drug problem, you set yourself up to be ejected from the drug program in violation of the terms of deferred judgment or probation.

Helping Those Who Are Addicted to Drugs

Prosecutors and judges want people with a drug problem to be treated and get better. Making an addict face drug charges over and over only makes the government work harder to try to fix the problem using jail/prison, and they know it doesn’t work.

Alternate sentences may be available, such as:

  • Deferred judgments conditioned on monitored “sobriety” such as daily/weekly urinalysis screening for drugs
  • Probation conditioned on rehab or an intensive outpatient program (IOP)

The government prosecutes prescription pills in drug charges every bit as much as illegal substances.

People Who Sell Drugs

Drug charges for trafficking in drugs or selling drugs can be extremely serious.

Federal drug charges are concerned with finding out if:

  • You sold extremely large amounts of drugs
  • You moved large amounts of drugs interstate
  • Your “drug selling” organization involves a large network of sellers or buyers

If so, you may be facing federal drug charges. You need a lawyer who is well-versed in government drug-busting operations. Mr. Solomon has worked felony charges of trafficking involving confidential informants, undercover police officer drug buy operations, drug robbery cases, state charges involving interstate trafficking of heroin and prescription drugs, user-to-user sales sting operations, and others.

Federal sentencing guidelines seriously penalize those with certain offenses on their criminal records, but tactics exist to help ease a federal sentence.
