Arizona's Drug Penalties Are Harsh

In the state of Arizona, drug possession crimes and their associated penalties fall into three different categories that are based on the type of substance and the amount of drugs found in your possession. For example, the possession of dangerous drugs like methamphetamines, LSD, or steroids is a Class 1 Misdemeanor that can result in up to 6 months of jail. Narcotics possession, such as for drugs like cocaine, heroin, and morphine, is a Class 5 Felony that includes up to 18 months in prison. Finally, marijuana possession is a Class 6 Felony that can result in a 1-year prison sentence.

Aside from the legal penalties, drug convictions can have broad implications on many areas of your life. A criminal conviction can derail applications for employment, schooling, housing, bank accounts, and more.

Creative Defenses for All Drug Crimes

Other state and federal drug charges that we can fight include:

  • PARAPHERNALIA: the possession, promotion, or production of equipment used to produce, consume, or conceal illegal drugs
