Is The Possession of "Meth" a Felony in Colorado?
Yes. Even the slightest amount of methamphetamine found on your person can create serious trouble for you, both in the immediate and in the long run. "Meth" is considered a Schedule II controlled substance by the state of Colorado. This means the drug is regarded as a highly addictive substance and must be thoroughly regulated by federal agencies. As a result, possession of methamphetamine is an automatic drug related felony, with the potential for some of the following sentences:
- Class 6 Felony - imprisonment of up to 3 years for possession of less than 2 grams
- Class 4 Felony - imprisonment of up to 12 years for possession of more than 2 grams
