The sale, importation, or transportation of drugs in Colorado is illegal. So is giving away any illegal or prescription drugs. Examples of illicit substances range from cocaine and heroin to methamphetamine, hydrocodone, and other prescription controlled substances.
The elements of a sale, importation, or transportation case are that the defendant committed a prohibited act, knowing that they were in the possession of a controlled substance with a quantity great enough where it could be inferred that it was to be sold. As well, the prosecution must also prove that the defendant actually offered to do one of the prohibited acts and that they intended on doing it.
