Possession of even one ecstasy pill in Colorado is a drug felony punishable by a sentence to prison. Although the legislature recently acted to amend penalties for possession of certain types of controlled substances, those amendments do not go into effect until March of 2020, and even then, possession of more than four grams of ecstasy remains a level four drug felony, while possession of lesser amounts will be punishable as a level one drug misdemeanor. Distribution of ecstasy pills is even more serious, and, depending on the amount involved, a conviction could land you in prison for up to thirty-two years. Even in cases of relatively small amounts, the addition of aggravating facts, such as the location of the transaction, whether distribution was made to a minor, prior convictions, or whether a firearm was present, can also greatly increase the potential prison sentence.
