Thin Dotted line for Colorado Drug Rehab

Boulder, Colorado is such a wonderful part of our country. One of the finest environments on the planet, but it has more than its share of alcohol and drug abuse and addiction. With the University of Colorado's reputation as a "party" school and many predator drug dealers taking advantage of this vulnerable population, it is important that quality help is available. The Boulder community is a diverse and exciting metropolitian area, but like many of these "hotspots", but it is obvious to anyone looking around the Peal Street Mall that Boulder has problems of illicit drugs and alcohol abuse.

Call us and we will provide quality care and advice on what you can DO to help your conditions in LIFE! Experienced and Licensed Counselors await your call for help... 888.781.7060.

Since the 1960's, Boulder, Colorado and drug abuse have been a problem. You meander around downtown Pearl Street you will see that the 60s are alive and well in Boulder. This isn't a bad thing, by any means and Boulder is proud of its history of university/arts culture and it well should be, but with this comes destructive values that romanticize and embellish the value of drug use in Boulder. This subculture has led many young people to find that the police have a tolerance for alcohol and drug use in Boulder and availability of illicit drugs. Anyone familiar with the Pearl Street Mall, in downtown Boulder, can easily identify this part of the Boulder population that is in need of alcohol and drug treatment or some forms of short or long-term rehab.

There are approximately 31,000 Colorado drug rehab and addiction treatment center admissions each year, however, due to the high relapse rate of many traditional drug rehab programs iin Boulder, most families are searching for something that works. This is where Colorado Drug Rehab can help. The University of Colorado and Boulder, Colorado have been known for many years as one of Playboy Magazine's top ten party schools and most of that reputation is connected to alcohol use and abuse. In recent years the University has restricted alcohol use in certain areas, but the college population is still heavily involved in underage drinking. Marijuana is also a drug of choice among this population and with the increased potency of today's marijuana, it has become much more debilitating then in years past. Now you can purchase and use marijuana legally, and that has only incrased problems related to drug abuse and addiction.

Boulder Crystal Meth and Methamphetamine Use

Crystal Meth use in Boulder is higher per capita than in many other communities in Colorado. Colorado Drug Rehab has taken more calls from meth users in Boulder than those seeking help from alcohol problems, but this is also related to the rapid severity of negative consequences seen with crystal meth use whereas alcohol abuse and addiction allows the user/addict to consume alcohol for a longer period of time, usually years, before it causes sever debilitation.

This Isn't the Boulder that I Remember or Want

When drug rehab in Boulder and drug prevention are not effective, society pays inmany painful ways. In California, which is usually the trend setter for many things in our society, both bad and good; the State Board of Education has adopted the message in prevention to elementary and secondary students that the use and experimentation with drugs, especially marijuana, is a natural "rite of passage" and part of the developmental processes of our children. Colorado Drug Rehab strongly disagrees. You can begin to take the attitude that perhaps this is misguided research and that good people are making policies because they believe in the science, but when they will not allow for a drug-free message to be given in the schools, you should start following the money. See how many middle-schools have posters about "health" that are sponsored and printed by Eli Lilly and other pharmaceutical companies. This type of "psychological" understanding of our kids leads to the following that occurred in Boulder, Colorado the week of April 20th, 2007. This passage taken from the Daily Camera... Boulder's newspaper:

"Three female Nevin Platt Middle School students were arrested on felony charges this week after an investigation into prescription drug trading that sent a fourth girl home sick, according to the Boulder County Sheriff's Office....The two girls accused of handing out pills face felony charges of possessing and distributing a Schedule II controlled substance, the Sheriff's Office said. The student who held the pills was also arrested and faces a possession charge."

We can't continue to criminalize our youth and increase the size and power of the criminal justice system in Boulder. We are seeing more and more signs of becoming a police governed state because we do not take responsibility for ensuring and demanding that our drug treatment and drug rehabs are effective, that our drug prevention messages are sound and effective and that anyone that is promoting anything other than effective types of programs should be subject to the free-market and not supported by our tax dollars Many of the state funded programs operate without any true scrutinity about their outcomes.

Take the time as citizens of the wonderful city of Boulder, Colorado to call the Colorado Drug Rehab line and we will help educate you on the many out-points in your local "war on drugs". Giving felonies to middle-school children is an indicator that things have gotten out of hand and they don't do that on their own. The citizens of Boulder, Colorado must push for effective programs and not allow the ideas that addiction is an inescapable chronic and progressive disease. Are these two young women diseased or are they misguided by our "mental health counselors" and others that follow those suppressive messages?

Call Colorado Drug Rehab at 888.781.7060 and start building your awareness and you will see your responsibillity level rise as well... the good news is taking responsibility brings you happiness and keeps Boulder beautiful!

Boulder is a Center for Date Rape Drugs

For many years, authorities and drug rehab professionals have known that Roofies, rope, roaches, liquid X, cherry meth, GHB, and rohypnol are prevalent in Boulder and surrounding areas. Collectively, these are names for what are known as "date rape" drugs. They have been termed "Date Rape" drugs because they cause someone to have a "high" that puts them in a condition where they no longer have control over their actions or where their intentions are inhibited to the point that they can be raped without putting up any resistance.

Many parents worry about who their daughter's might get involved with someone that could pass one these drugs to an innocent victim. Frequently, these drugs are put into ice-cubes and added to the drinks of the victims at parties and other events at the University and other local bars.

Women need to be very aware of these dangers if they are involved in the Boulder bar scene. These drugs are orderless, tasteless and colorless, so they can be put into your drink without your being aware that you are ingesting them. As a rule of thumb, never leave your drink unattended and when sitting at the bar or a table, cover the opening of your glass with your hand or drink from a beer bottle, which would be much harder to contaminate. One Boulder woman said that when she and her friends go to the bars they make it a rule that everyone keeps an eye on their drinks and those of their friends.

If you think that someone has slipped you a date-rape drug or that someone has these drugs, then contact the Boulder County Drug Task Force... see directly below...

Boulder County Drug Enforcement Support

Many of us that are in the alcohol and drug rehab and treatment field do not recognize that there are many others that are helping us in the battle against drugs becoming a problem for the citizens of Boulder County. One such organization is The Boulder County Drug Task Force. This Task Force is a multi-law enforcement agency task force whose primary focus is to investigate violations of state and federal drug law.

Currently the Boulder County Drug Task Force is comprised of detectives and supervisors from the Boulder Police Department, Boulder County Sheriff's Office, University of Colorado Police Department, Louisville Police Department, Lafayette Police Department, and Erie Police Department. The Boulder County Drug Task Force serves the towns of Lyons and Superior as well because the Boulder County Sheriff's Office provides contract law enforcement services to those communities. It operates under an Inter-Governmental Agreement signed in 1998 by mayors, city managers, administrators, and attorneys and a county commissioner from the represented government entities.

Currently, there are nine detective positions, two sergeant positions, a Task Force commander position and one administrative and secretarial position. Detectives serve a minimum of two and up to five years on the Task Force before rotating back into their contributing agency. Detectives receive eighty hours of basic drug investigation instruction from the Drug Enforcement Agency in conjunction with the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Agency. They eventually attend an forty-hour certification in Clandestine Lab Response and Investigation as well. Additional training is an on-going process and includes case law review, officer safety, defensive tactics, firearms proficiency, and building entry and search techniques.

Drug investigations involve a complex and unconventional approach in law enforcement. A strong knowledge of criminal case law pertaining to search and seizure as well as laws of arrest is a minimum requirement. Conducting law enforcement in a realm of drug trafficking requires detectives to be able to operate in dangerous environments and situations outside the usual law enforcement arena where uniformed officers work. Detectives are picked for their knowledge, skills and abilities to fit into the various drug cultures that exist in our communities. They develop investigative leads from various confidential and anonymous sources of information as well as from the frequent concerned citizen. View their website HERE.

To ensure that the Boulder County Drug Task Force is represented properly on our site, this language was taken from their home page.

Latest Drug News in Boulder

Boulder County Drug Court Has New Approach

The drug court in Boulder County, Colorado has a new positive reinforcement approach to dealing with repeat drug and alcohol offenders in the county, and the court's groundbreaking methods are making the news. According to a Denver Post article by Jessica Fender, the drug court is offering rewards and incentives to staying clean in order to curb recidivism among repeat nonviolent drug offenders. Rewards include things like gift cards to grocery stores, tickets to the movies and gift certificates for retailers.

The judge who started the program, Boulder District Court Chief Judge Roxanne Bailin, explained the reasoning behind the program to the Denver Post. "One of the critical parts of a successful drug court program is the immediacy of sanctions and the immediacy of rewards. Tangible rewards maximize success. It relates to the fact that people who are addicted to drugs are really people for whom immediate gratification is important. That's what drug use is."

This new incentive approach is meeting with some success. Drug offenders in the program, while they do also have probation and other legal consequences, are getting arrested on drug or alcohol related crimes less because of the positive reinforcement for staying sober and out of trouble. Many of the individuals on the program told the Denver Post that the program shows them that law enforcement wants them to get better. Many of their interactions with law enforcement are negative, and having a positive interaction can make a world of difference. Of drug offenders who graduate from the incentive program, only 15 percent are reoffenders, compared to 43% of individuals who drop out of the incentive program.

MEDICAL MARIJUANA ON UNIVERSITEY OF COLORADO CAMPUS?

In Colorado, the most limiting restriction on the use of medical marijuana is enforced through the campus.

"We do not allow marijuana anywhere on campus -- period," CU-Boulder spokesman Bronson Hilliard said.

The drug poses several potential problems when present on university grounds, especially in residence halls, Hilliard said. If students have pot in the dorms, it creates safety risks for all the students living in the residence halls, including making the dorms targets for burglary, fire hazards and the well-being of other students.

Freshmen living on campus can't possess or use marijuana in their private residence, so CU will allow first-year students with medical marijuana cards out of their housing contract in order to live off campus. CU is known for having a large 4/20 pro-marijuana gathering every April on the Norlin Quad, drawing, in recent years, crowds of up to 10,000 pot smokers. But with strict campus regulations regarding marijuana use, the rules on 4/20 can get blurry.

"Police presence during 4/20 is designed primarily to promote safety and provide for timely responses to emergency situations if needed," Bosley wrote in an e-mail. "If police witness persons buying, selling or using marijuana on campus on April 20, or any other occasion, citations could be issued."

CU police ticketed 18 students on Norlin Quad during this year's 4/20 celebration, including 16 for narcotics, 1 for trespassing and 1 for alcohol, which may seem minimal with about 8,000 participants this year. While CU police stand strong on their enforcement of marijuana use on campus, Hilliard explained CU's unwritten policy for handling 4/20.

"We're not going to wade into the crowd at 4:20 p.m. and start ticketing people," Hilliard said. "You have to be pretty flagrant and it's at the officers discretion to ticket."

When caught in possession of one ounce or less or using marijuana illegally, students could face a petty offense charge, including a fine and further consequences as decided by CU's Office of Student Conduct.

The university will hand out citations as stated by Bosley regarding 4/20, however the offense is minor and Hilliard compares it to a traffic speeding ticket. With medical marijuana licenses making it difficult for the state to pursue charges against anyone who holds a legal license, possession offenses are a low priority, according to Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett.

"Basic possession of marijuana is a low priority for my office," Garnett said. "We will pursue cases that are brought to us, but the consequences are not significant on first offense." Colorado Daily (Boulder, CO)Tue, 24 Aug 2010

BOULDER POT DISPENSARIES STRUGGLE WITH NEW STATE RULES ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA

Boulder-area providers of medical marijuana are scrambling to comply with new state regulations that require them to grow most of their own pot, keep detailed records of all transactions and apply for state licenses through a process that includes criminal background checks.

The new rules, signed into law by Gov. Bill Ritter earlier this month, are predicted to put at least half of the state's 1,100 medical marijuana dispensaries out of business.

Local dispensary owners agree their numbers soon will be fewer, but each business owner is doing everything possible to be one of the survivors.

"When I look six months down the road, we're either going to be very successful because we made it through this, or we're going to be out of business," said Ryan Hartman, owner of Boulder Wellness Center on Arapahoe Avenue.

The biggest hurdle for Hartman is the requirement that dispensaries grow 70 percent of their own marijuana by Sept. 1. Hartman doesn't have the resources to hire employees right now, and he and his partners -- his wife and another couple -- are working "triple-time" to ramp up what had been a very small growing operation.

The new rules also require that dispensaries -- called "medical marijuana centers" -- have a local license by July 1 and apply for a state license through an as-yet-undetermined process by Aug. 1. The state license requires criminal background checks for all owners, officers and employees and calls for detailed security and record-keeping measures to account for all the marijuana that moves through a center.

"I think ultimately the goal of the legislation is to centralize the industry so it's easier to keep track of and control and tax," said Eric Moutz, a Boulder attorney who specializes in advising clients who work with medical marijuana.

While some of the law's requirements are clear, many of the details still need to be worked out through a state rule-making process that could take most of the year.

"Everything is in a holding pattern until the rules get set," Moutz said. "And those could be crippling or they could be very reasonable."

At the same time, marijuana advocates are pursuing several lawsuits aimed at blocking the new laws.

Matt Cook, senior director of enforcement for the Colorado Department of Revenue, already has spent hours in meetings with people with a stake in the outcome -- dispensary owners, patient advocates, makers of edibles -- and expects the rule-making process to take the better part of the year, though a basic application for a state license should be available sometime in July.

The rest of the law won't go into effect until July 1, 2011.

Cook said the state has several licensing standards for controversial industries, such as liquor stores and casinos, from which to draw in developing requirements for medical marijuana centers, and he's committed to an open process that includes input from a variety of sectors.

The law also allows municipalities and their voters to ban dispensaries, as well as regulate their location and the total number of dispensaries.

Superior recently became the first town in Boulder County to completely ban dispensaries. Lafayette, Louisville and Longmont all extended existing moratoriums on new dispensaries into next year. That gives the towns more time to see how state regulation develops and consider what local regulations to implement.

Boulder spokeswoman Sarah Huntley said the city attorney's office is studying the new law and how it relates to local regulations adopted earlier this year. Those require dispensaries to pay expensive licensing fees and limit how many dispensaries can locate in a given area.

As of the end of April, 125 people had active sales tax licenses for marijuana-related businesses in Boulder, Huntley said, but city officials believe there are only 40 to 50 dispensaries open and operating.

Ernie Travis, owner of Boulder Vital Herbs on north Broadway, said the new requirements represent a significant cost. He'll have to come up with fees for both the city and the state, but the real hurdle is growing more of his own supply. Setting up a grow operation large enough to meet his business' needs will cost $50,000, he said.

"I always wanted to be the store where you could come in and shake the hand of the farmer who grew your medicine, but it's just not humanly possible," he said.

Over the last year, he supplied about 10 percent of his store's marijuana and bought the rest from area growers.

To meet the new requirements, he's selling shares in his business to some of his growers, turning them into part-owners and counting their efforts toward his 70 percent.

Moutz said such arrangements between growers and retail operations may not pass muster with regulators. However, the new regulations explicitly allow dispensary owners to have employees who work on growing pot, whereas before, anyone who dealt with marijuana had to be either a caregiver or a patient.

"Now you won't have to have this fiction of being a caregiver" if all you do is grow marijuana for sale, he said.

However, sticking with caregiver status would allow providers to avoid many of the new regulations, including the detailed record-keeping that could come back to hurt providers if the federal government cracks down on pot.

"You have to keep detailed records of the sale of a product that still is illegal at the federal level," Moutz said. "That's what would scare me. You're required to keep records that would implicate you in federal drug crimes."

Moutz said he expects to see some dispensary owners getting out of the business and setting up as caregivers whose patients have a doctor's recommendation that allows them to have a large number of plants.

The surplus will end up in a gray market or even a black market for marijuana, but the business will take place out of sight of the public and regulators.

"I don't condone that," Moutz said. "It's clearly illegal. But it's easier than complying with the law."

Boulder County City of Superior has Other Opinions:

From the Summit Daily News on June 15, 2010:

1ST COLORADO CITY BANS POT SHOPS

SUPERIOR - The Boulder County town of Superior is the first in Colorado to ban medical marijuana shops after a state law last week allowed such actions.

Superior town council members voted 6-0 Monday to ban dispensaries. Other towns, including Vail, are moving quickly toward banning marijuana dispensaries.

Gov. Bill Ritter signed a law last week that allows cities to ban marijuana shops, or make moratoriums permanent. Before that, many cities banned pot shops through moratoriums or by denying business licenses, but state law was silent on whether that was permitted.

Medical marijuana advocates have vowed to challenge local dispensary bans in court.

Drugs of Abuse in Boulder, Colorado

Cocaine is considered a significant drug threat to Colorado. Powder cocaine is readily available in Boulder throughout Colorado and crack cocaine is readily available in Boulder and other urban population areas in Colorado. Cocaine is the drug most often associated with violent crime in the State. Cocaine is generally sold in ounce and pound quantities in Colorado. Crack use is declining but remains available in the larger metropolitan areas of Colorado.

Club drugs, which are mostly synthetic substances, are increasing in availability and use in Boulder, Colorado. LSD in liquid form has been readily available in Boulder since the 60's. During 2001, 34% of those surveyed in Colorado reported lifetime usage of MDMA. 4.5% of those surveyed reported usage of MDMA within the past 30 days. The average user age was 17.3, and the average age of first time use was 15.9 years.

Heroin - The most common types of heroin available in Boulder are Mexican black tar heroin and brown powdered heroin. New heroin users in Boulder are often young adults who smoke or snort the drug rather than inject it. This is due to a misconception that this practice is safer and less likely to lead to physical addiction. Cheese heroin (a black tar heroin/diphenhydramine mixture) has been widely developed in the Dallas, Texas area, with 22 deaths in Dallas County since 2005. There are no current reports of widespread cheese heroin abuse outside the Dallas area; however, in March the Boulder County, Colorado, Drug Task Force reported that novice heroin abusers were crushing over-the-counter pain relief tablets containing acetaminophen and diphenhydramine, mixing them into black tar heroin, and snorting the mixture.

Marijuana is readily available in multi-pound quantities throughout Boulder and the rest of Colorado . A highly potent form of marijuana, called "BC Bud," is also easily obtainable.

Methamphetamine is a primary drug threat to Boulder, Colorado. Crystal methamphetamine, also known as glass in Colorado, is becoming increasingly available throughout the State and has tested as high as 90% pure. Purity levels for methamphetamine vary in Colorado.

Prescription Drugs - The diversion and abuse of OxyContin (oxycodone) is a significant problem in Colorado. Hydrocodone (Vicodin) and Darvocet are the most commonly abused controlled substances.

Colorado Drug Rehab is a free service that will help you find a drug rehab for any alcohol or drug addiction problem you or a loved one may be having. It is easy to confuse the different terms used in this field, describing the different types of drug rehab centers, drug rehabilitation centers, and substance abuse treatment programs.
