Despite the legalization of medical marijuana in Colorado, harsh penalties continue to await those who use, abuse and circulate controlled substances such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, illegally obtained prescription drugs and so-called “party” drugs.
A mandatory prison sentence could be in store, depending on the weight of drugs possessed. Prosecutors use a “habitual offender” statute in jurisdictions of the Pikes Peak region to enhance, or increase, punishments for those who are convicted of drug crimes.
