Arizona Drug Offenses Defense Attorney
It is no secret that Arizona has some of the harshest drug laws in the country for both possession and sales. If convicted of a drug crime one can face serious jail time as well as monetary fines up to $150,000.
For example, possession with the intent to sell less than two pounds of marijuana is a class 4 felony punishable by a minimum sentence of 1 year and a maximum sentence of 3.75 years.

Arizona Drug Possession Crimes
A person charged with the mere possession of any amount of narcotic (cocaine, heroin, opium, morphine, oxycodone, etc.) or dangerous drug (LSD, ecstasy, methamphetamines, steroids, hallucinogenic mushrooms, GHB, mescaline, clonazepam, lorazepam,) can face life consequences including jail time, paralyzing fines and the often unshakable stigma of having a drug crime on your permanent record.
Arizona Drug Sales Crimes
As strict as the possession laws are in Arizona, the penalties for selling drugs are infinitely higher. Possessing narcotics for sale is a Class 2 felony and carries a potential sentence of up to 5 years in prison.
