Black Market Marijuana Leads DA to Call It “Gateway Drug to Homicide”
Posted By:

post


 
Back in February, Jeff Sessions stated that there was “more violence” around marijuana.
He’s not the first politician or member of law enforcement to make these types of claims, and numerous others have followed suit. Just a few weeks ago, District Attorney Dan May argued that marijuana was “the gateway drug to homicide in our community and across our state.”
 
Out of context, his comment sounds pretty ridiculous,… Continue reading this article

Posted By:

post


Opioid use, abuse, and addiction are currently at an all-time high.
 
To really put things in perspective: overdosing on drugs is the leading cause of accidental death here in the United States. Where does opioid addiction fit into that? It is responsible for nearly half of these deaths. In raw numbers, of the 52,404 fatal drug overdoses in 2015, 12,990 deaths are related to heroin, and 20,101 are related… Continue reading this article

Charged for Using a Phone? If Drug Crimes Are Involved, Yes
Posted By:

post


 
The everyday items that play a part in drug crimes are very important to law enforcement officials. Because of this, they are legally allowed to confiscate items such as cars, homes, and cash that could have been used in the drug crimes.
 
If an item like a phone is used, not only will that item be confiscated… it will also add more criminal charges to the individual’s record.… Continue reading this article

Colorado Senate May Make Civil Forfeiture in Drug Cases Harder
Posted By:

post


 
There are plenty of things that are unfair about the way that Colorado handles drug charges and convictions. Nonviolent drug offenses can put you behind bars for longer than some violent crimes. Drugs associated with certain minority groups come with harsher penalties than similar drugs more commonly used by the majority – and statistics have long shown that, regardless of the type of drug charge – minority groups are… Continue reading this article

What Are Colorado “Drug Diversions?”
Posted By:

post


 
When you think of big drug crimes, something resembling the plot of Breaking Bad may enter your mind. You might imagine large-scale drug trafficking rings of heroin or cocaine that are run by violent drug dealers who live a lavish life in secrecy.
 
Does this really match the reality, though? Sometimes. Not all drug crimes involve dealers making and selling illegal drugs, however. Drug diversion is a crime… Continue reading this article

A Guide to Mandatory Minimums for Drug Trafficking
Posted By:

post


 
When we talk about the sentencing guidelines for criminal offenses in Colorado, they’re just that – guidelines. Aggravating and mitigating factors, as well as the amount of charges and a judge’s own discretion, all work together as factors that make up the final sentence.
 
At the federal level, these rules are a little different. One of the biggest policies that affects sentencing at the federal level is mandatory… Continue reading this article

The crimes allegedly began in the early 2000s when FedEx started shipping drugs (strong sleep aids, painkillers,… Continue reading this article

Colorado has been given a spotlight in national news for its legalization of recreational marijuana, but by focusing on this one drug, other issues within the state have been swept under the rug.
 
Ignoring the abuse of other drugs in Colorado means turning a blind eye to an epidemic in our state. When it comes to prescription drugs and opiate abuse, Colorado has a big drug problem. And… Continue reading this article

Colorado Drug Possession: Everything but Marijuana
Posted By:

post


 
With recreational marijuana being legal here, many Coloradans might forget that marijuana is the only legal drug. Other drugs and controlled substances are still against the law.
 
Some might hold out hope for the legalization of other illicit substances – but they shouldn’t hold their breath. A recent poll shows that when it comes to other drugs such as LSD, mushrooms, cocaine, heroin, meth, MDMA, and ibogaine, Americans… Continue reading this article

Mexican Cartel Drug Trafficking Decreases – Colorado’s Increases
Posted By:

post


As long as drugs are illegal, there will be drug trafficking. And even though marijuana is now legal in Colorado, it’s still illegal in other states and countries, which creates a drug trafficking issue.
 
Since marijuana was legalized in Colorado and Washington, 70 percent of Mexican drug cartels have seen a decrease in their marijuana profits. This decrease is prompting Mexico to consider its own legalization of marijuana.
