Drug charges follow claimed discovery of illegal grow operation

Use of recreational marijuana is permitted in Colorado, but there are strict regulations in place when it comes to growing the plants. Only those who are older than 21 may grow marijuana for personal use. There is a limit to the number of plants each person may grow, and also the number of flowering plants an individual can have at one time. Violating those laws could lead to drug charges.

A report by the Teller County Sheriff's Office revealed that two men, apparently a father and son, were recently arrested after an investigation that involved multiple law enforcement agencies. Reportedly, a search of the address of the two men yielded 43 marijuana plants along with processed marijuana, a number of guns and several vehicles -- all of which was considered evidence of an illegal growing operation. It is alleged that the two men, ages 64 and 40, shipped the marijuana they produced across state lines.

The sheriff's office further alleges the men used the U.S. Postal Service to send the illegally grown marijuana to their clients. Authorities believe this is not a new operation but rather one that had been going on for a considerable time. Both men are facing felony drug charges, and authorities reported that additional charges might follow their conversations with the DEA and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. The men have been held on $50,000 bonds in county jail.

When anyone in Colorado faces drug charges, the sensible thing to do would be to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. An attorney can scrutinize the charges, the evidence and the procedures followed by law enforcement during the search and seizure, and also the arrest. Any irregularities can be addressed in court, and the lawyer can explore the possibility of plea deals while also preparing to vigorously defend the client at trial.
