Selling MDMA in Denver
Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), Molly, and ecstasy are all used to describe a highly addictive, schedule 1 drug that is federally illegal in all states. Although the extent of punishment will often range according to the circumstances surrounding the arrest, possession of this illicit compound will always result in felony charges. Those charges are further exacerbated when an officer determines any intent to sell or distribute this harmful drug.
MDMA often comes in a pill form, is usually available in a variety of different colors, and comes stamped with an exclusive symbol that manufacturers use to identify their product. In the state of Colorado, even a seemingly minor possession of just one pill can have a lifelong impact. Pre-separated containers and large sums of cash are almost always a dead giveaway of distribution activity.
According to Colorado law, intent to distribute Ecstasy or getting caught selling a schedule 1 substance is a Class 3 felony that is punishable with up to 12 years in prison as well as a hefty fine of no more than $750,000. In addition to these immediate consequences, a record that has been tainted with a felony might prevent one from obtaining future employment, housing, or the right to carry and/or purchase a firearm.
Contact a Denver Drug Crimes Attorney
MDMA possession with intent charges are very serious, but luckily for most first and second time offenders, this state has developed a unique court system that exclusively handles most, if not all drug related matters. Perhaps one of the most attractive aspects of this system is the fact that instead of spending a lengthy period of time in jail, defendants may have the choice to enroll in an approved drug rehabilitation program instead. This is just one of the many ways that Colorado is proactively making choices that will assist those in need and work towards the eradication of illegal drug possession and trafficking.
