Drugs and Colorado
Colorado houses a population of some 5,116,796 people. The capital of the Rocky Mountain state is the “Mile High” city itself, Denver. Colorado is known most for its climate, its outdoors scene and its vibrant cities, as well as a heritage built on epic gold mining days and the intrepid exploration of people such as Lewis and Clark.
- For such a beautiful state as Colorado, though, drug and alcohol use is an ugly reality. Crack is available in small amounts in metropolitan cities in Colorado.
- Mexican cartels are responsible for bringing in cocaine to Colorado. Heroin availability and use may be on the rise in Colorado and is also brought in through Mexico.
- While the number of methamphetamine laboratories within Colorado has diminished in the past few years, the amount of methamphetamine brought in through Mexico has increased.
- Marijuana is the most commonly abused drug in Colorado.
- Prescription medication addictions are on the rise through the use of the internet and through forged scripts.
- 43 percent of Colorado’s high school population has tried marijuana in some form or another.
- Of Colorado citizens between the age of 12 and 17, four percent had experimented with cocaine and eight percent had used prescription drugs for non-medical purposes.
- Meanwhile, a quarter of the Colorado population from 18 to 25 had used illicit drugs in the past month alone.
- About 9 percent of that same demographic in Colorado had, in particular, used cocaine.
- 70 percent of those in Colorado between the ages of 18 and 25 consume alcohol (whether or not at a problematic value).
Drug-related crimes in Colorado, which can sometimes be compounded with violent crimes due to the drug’s influence, are common in the state, but generally decreasing.
- The punishment for possession in Colorado isn’t excessive. Possession of less than one ounce of marijuana is a petty offense and carries with it a $100 fine and a court appearance.
- Failure to appear on the possession charge carries up to a 6 month jail sentence and a $500 fine.
- Using marijuana in public is up to 15 days in jail. Any sale of marijuana is considered a felony and is punishable by two to six years in prison with a fine of $2,000 to $500,000 and a $1,500 surcharge.
- Sale within 1,000 feet of a school or near public housing carries a prison sentence of up to 24 years and a $10,000 to $1,000,000 fine.
- Any felony conviction results in a license suspension of up to one year. Many first time offenders can opt for drug rehab in Colorado and probation rather than jail.
