Diligent Defense In Drug Crime Charges
Even with the legalization of pot or marijuana in the state of Colorado, you can still be charged with a drug crime. These charges can bring serious, long-term consequences.

Protecting Your Constitutional Rights
We are guaranteed certain rights and protections under the U.S. Constitution. Was the evidence properly gathered? Was your right to not speak respected? Did the police have reasonable cause, a search warrant? If you answered no to any of these questions, you may already have a strong defense.
Everybody’s Doing It
The law’s focus is not on all people who use drugs, only on those who get caught. There could be 100 people at a concert, party or other gathering and you may be the only one who gets caught.
Unfortunately law enforcement goes after the easy target: Those who have the fewest defenses and who are already in some way vulnerable. At Zuckerman Law, we are invested in our clients. This means providing a strong defense but also seeking a long-term solution. If you have addiction issues, entering a program might not only spare you from prison time, it may save your life.
Two Statements That Can Protect You
As attorneys who educate Denver public school children about their rights as guaranteed in our Constitution, we know that each person has the power to not implicate themselves. If you are ever pulled over or detained by law enforcement, simply and respectfully state:
- I don’t want to talk.
- I want a lawyer.
Then ask, “Am I free to leave?” If law enforcement repeatedly questions you, clearly repeat statements one and two above. At your first opportunity, contact an experienced attorney.
