Adams County Possession of a Controlled Substance Lawyer: Definition of Possession of Cocaine and Heroin in Jefferson County
The Adams and Jefferson County, Colorado law definition of Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance – C.R.S. 18-18-403.5 – is:
“(1) It is unlawful for a person knowingly to possess a controlled substance.
(2) A person who violates subsection (1) of this section by possessing:
(a) Any material, compound, mixture, or preparation that contains any quantity of flunitrazepam, ketamine, cathinones, or a controlled substance listed in schedule I or II of part 2 of this article commits a level 4 drug felony.
(c) Any material, compound, mixture, or preparation that contains any quantity of a controlled substance listed in schedule III, IV, or V of part 2 of this article except flunitrazepam or ketamine commits a level 1 drug misdemeanor.”
Because the drug the teacher used was heroin (a schedule I drug) and cocaine (a schedule II drug), the teacher would be facing a class 4 drug felony if this had occurred in Brighton or Golden.
