State law has decriminalized marijuana in Colorado, so that means that no one can get in trouble for using it, right?

Colorado criminal defense: Man seeks sentencing reduction

While the need for a vigorous criminal defense during a trial of pending charges is obvious, there are also many other stages during criminal proceedings when effective counsel is necessary. Whether an individual is merely under suspicion of committing a crime or has been convicted and is hoping to overturn a negative result, an effective criminal defense strategy is crucial. A recent post-conviction application by a man serving a 15 year prison term in Colorado underscores the fact that legal issues often remain long after the ink is dry on a judge's sentencing order.
