Minor in Possession of Alcohol and Weed Tourists in Arapahoe County - What are the Risks
Did you know that Minor in Possession of Alcohol (MIP) is also charged when a minor is in possession of marijuana? A popular reason for some people to visit Colorado is to use legalized marijuana; the trouble for some is that they are under 21. What they don't think about is that the risk of getting caught and the legal consequences may actually be higher in Arapahoe or Adams County than in the visitor's home state. If a person under the age of 21 tries to obtain marijuana from a retailer, he or she will need to violate other laws to get it, and that usually involves using an adult. C.R.S 18-18-406 makes it drug felony for an adult to transfer marijuana to a minor. In addition, the adult can also be also be charged with Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.
