Marijuana Trafficking – Moving Pot to Other States

If you are caught selling pot in the black market, your charges will be based on the amount of marijuana the police find. However, when police find a marijuana seller, they may have already flipped a marijuana buyer. Savvy police will get several “buys” under their belt to be able to bring far more serious charges, such as money laundering and Colorado Organized Crime Control Act (COCCA), which could lead to up to 24 years prison.

Police are experts in flipping growers into confidential informants. Police lure out of state buyers to Colorado for a profitable buy, and arrest them. If a gun is involved, you could face a minimum of 12 years of prison and a maximum of 32 years in prison—yes, even in Colorado.

Some possible marijuana trafficking defenses include:

  • Illegal search and seizure of your property
  • Unaware of the possession of the plants in question
  • Entrapment

Marijuana Sales Inside Colorado

If you sell marijuana inside Colorado without a license, you are committing a felony. If you sell to a minor, that felony will be more serious. Most literature indicate that marijuana use by young people is harmful to brain development. Whether or not this is true, police and prosecutors believe it, so they will prosecute sellers to minors very harshly.

Marijuana Cultivation – Growing Marijuana in Large Amounts

While marijuana is legal in Colorado, growing it inside a residence can be tricky. Colorado residents are allowed no more than 12 plants in their residence, and if a larger amount is suspected and reported, the grower could easily face criminal charges. Cities can also pass their own regulations regarding marijuana growth that are stricter than state laws. The City of Aurora, for example, will strongly prosecute marijuana cultivation when the smell is evident from outside the property. These city charges carry a penalty of up to a year in jail along with a possibility of a $2,650 fine.

Attorney Mark Solomon offers legal representation to those whose marijuana grows have been prosecuted by local governments or the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). With his help, you can rest assured your case is in good hands. During your free consultation, you can gain a better understanding of the best ways to exercise your legal rights.

Some possible defenses include:

  • You are not the owner of the plants in question
  • The police were unlawful in their search and seizure of the plants
  • No valid search warrants were issued
