Drug charges should always be taken seriously because so much can be threatened by them. A man was recently arrested northwest of Denver, in a neighboring community, for allegedly having a large quantity of methamphetamine on him, as well as a loaded firearm. According to police, the 26-year old man was approached by an officer in a Walmart as he was attempting to shoplift merchandise from the store. The man was allegedly uncooperative and told police he had a handgun. The man was arrested on a special offense drug charge and several other felony charges.
While drug laws have undergone some recent changes, some drug laws have remained unchanged. In any event, drug charges remain a serious issue for anyone faced with them. Both the freedom and future of the accused person may be threatened when drug charges are involved. Drug charges can lead to prison time, fines and a damaged reputation. Depending on the amount of drugs the accused party is alleged to have, drug charges, and possible consequences, can increase.
