Ecstasy Possession

MDMA/Ecstasy Possession Colorado Criminal Attorney

Ecstasy or MDMA (3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine) in Denver, Colorado, can go by a variety of street terms, and many more will continue to develop. MDMA is usually cut with another substance (typically methamphetamine, because it is a byproduct of MDMA synthesis, making it a cheap and readily available additive). The cut product Ecstasy in Lakewood, Colorado, and other cities is then processed into little pills sometimes referred to as "candy" because of their candy-like color and shape, individually called catchy names like "Decepticons," based on what they have been stamped with. Each major producer of Ecstasy has a certain stamp that the manufacturer continually uses, creating a reputation for pills that are considered higher quality when seen in Aurora, and throughout Colorado. See more about the classification of drug offenses in Colorado.

Ecstasy/MDMA is considered a Schedule I drug that has no medical benefit, a high potential for abuse and lacks safety under medical supervision. C.R.S. 18-18-203. Historically it was used in cognitive therapy, since the recognized medical use has been severely cut back to few cases.

Possession of Ecstasy Is Treated Like Any Other Schedule I Drug

In Colorado, Ecstasy is a felony and susceptible to a prison sentence based on the quantity of the drug. C.R.S. 18-18-403.5.

  • Possession of less than 4 grams is a Class 6 felony
  • Possession of more than 4 grams is a Class 4 felony

Quantities possessed above 4 grams (and sometimes below) will determine whether you are charged with the distribution, manufacture or sale of Ecstasy in Castle Rock, and other Colorado cities. C.R.S. 18-18-405. Adams County and Jefferson County, along with others, charge larger quantities as distribution and manufacturing Class 3 felonies. Other factors, such as the presence of equipment and ingredients of Ecstasy, packaging materials and weighing equipment, will factor into the filing decision by police. The bottom line is that drug dealers are sentenced harshly in our state, and even minor quantity dealers can face mandatory prison time.
