Marijuana Offenses

Knowledgeable Criminal Defense For Changing Times

Although Colorado has legalized marijuana in many regards, there are still marijuana crimes. Some of these crimes are felony offenses punishable by a year or more in prison and fines up to $100,000. Do not make the mistake of thinking that you are facing "just a marijuana charge." You need highly experienced legal counsel to protect your interests, the sooner the better.

The criminal defense lawyers of FleschLaw have years of experience defending citizens in Metro Denver and statewide against drug charges, including marijuana offenses. We are current with the new marijuana laws and how they are being enforced and punished. Our knowledgeable and aggressive representation may keep you out of jail and keep your record clean.

Colorado Marijuana Law And Marijuana Drug Crimes

As of Jan. 1, 2014, Amendment 64 decriminalized the recreational possession of marijuana in Colorado. Residents age 21 and older can purchase and possess up to an ounce. Medical marijuana users can possess up to two ounces. However, it is still illegal to smoke marijuana in most public places and illegal to possess marijuana on federal lands. The new laws have spawned a marijuana industry, but growing and selling cannabis is tightly regulated.

FleschLaw represents people who have run afoul of the new Colorado statutes or the existing (and often conflicting) federal marijuana laws. Our defense attorneys can intervene if you are charged with:

  • Public use of marijuana
  • Marijuana DUI (driving under the influence of cannabis)
  • Felony possession of marijuana (more than an ounce)
  • Medical marijuana violations (more than two ounces)
  • Growing more than six plants (personal use)
  • Growing more than 15 plants (licensed grower)
  • Selling marijuana or marijuana-laced products without a license
  • Transporting marijuana across state lines
  • Drug trafficking

Don't Let Your Future Go Up In Smoke

A drug conviction of any kind can result in jail or prison time and other criminal penalties. The collateral consequences can be very harsh, too. A "marijuana conviction" may not sound so terrible, but it could literally cost you jobs or career opportunities, a scholarship or college eligibility, a loan or apartment, plus the right to vote and possess firearms.

We know what to do to avoid these extreme consequences. If you have no prior offenses, you may qualify for a deferred sentence or diversion program. If the prosecutor can't or won't negotiate, we will challenge the arrest from every possible angle to prevent a conviction or limit the sentence. We regularly try cases, and we have a good track record in court.

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
