On October 1, 2013, Colorado amended and lessened previous drug sentencing penalties. For felony drug offenses, there are four levels of drug felonies: DF1, DF2, DF3, and DF4. Possessing a large amount of an illegal drug or trafficking across state lines is a serious offense, and a conviction may result in at least one year in prison. Convicted felons forfeit their rights to vote and own firearms. Here is a breakdown of the different levels of felony sentences and penalties:
Note that, unlike the other levels, level one drug felonies carry a mandatory prison sentence of at least eight years.
The severity of drug offense charges varies based on the classification of the substance involved and the nature of the incident. For instance, possessing a small amount of an illegal substance carries a much smaller sentence than trafficking or selling a large amount of that same drug. These minor drug offenses are often treated as misdemeanors. A misdemeanor possession conviction may be punishable by a small fine at the least or several months in jail at the most. Below is a breakdown of drug misdemeanors in Colorado.
A controlled dangerous substance (CDS) is a drug or chemical that is regulated by the government because of its potential for abuse or addiction. Specific regulations and penalties vary state by state; Colorado divides CDs into five categories or “schedules,” described in more detail below.
