Trafficking of Controlled SubstancesSuccess Comes From A Place of Strength & Experience
Facing Drug Trafficking
Charges in Colorado?
Retain our Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Lawyer Today
While possessing a controlled substance can be a criminal offense, the importation or exportation of one of these substances with illegal intention is also heavily prosecuted in Colorado. Drug trafficking is a broadly-encompassing crime, as even drugs that were acquired legally could be grounds for a conviction if you intend to redistribute them without authorization.
If you are facing drug trafficking charges, it is not advised that you face Colorado prosecutors alone. Contact the Colorado Springs criminal defense attorney at The Samuelson Law Firm. Attorney Christian C. Samuelson has represented a multitude of accused clients and has a long history of case success. My work has earned me numerous legal honors, including admission into the Colorado Bar Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and many more.
Are you facing drug trafficking charges? I am available to help you 24/7.

Colorado Drug Trafficking Penalties
Because Colorado's drug laws are so widely-encompassing, your exact penalties will depend heavily on a number of factors, including:
- The type of substance
- The amount you have
- Your intent in possessing it
- Any aggravating factors (i.e. being caught with it in a school zone)
Each controlled substance is placed into a "schedule," with each schedule dictating how seriously the alleged offense can be punished. Your attorney will be able to analyze your case and determine the best course of action, including negotiating for reduced sentences in extreme cases.
Colorado's drug schedules are as follows:
- Schedule I are the most dangerous drugs, including synthetic opiates and heroin
- Schedule II includes opium, cocaine, morphine, and several others
- Schedule III includes anabolic steroids, testosterone, and pure codeine
- Schedule IV includes medical sedatives and tranquilizers
- Schedule V are the least dangerous drugs, including low-narcotic drugs, such as codeine
Drug trafficking charges are "wobbler" crimes, and can be considered either a misdemeanor or a felony. In either case, you could be facing a fine, jail time, a permanent criminal record, and numerous other sentences that your lawyer may be able to negotiate.
