Marijuana Crimes in Arizona
Highly-Rated Mesa Drug Crime Attorneys
Marijuana is a substance that is currently surrounded by hot debate over
whether or not it should be legalized for medicinal and recreational use.
In Arizona, it is still considered a Schedule 1 controlled substance by
state and federal mandates. If you are arrested for any sort of criminal
activity related to marijuana, you are likely going to face serious legal
consequences if you are convicted.
Do not leave things up to chance, or up to a public defender that could
be totally indifferent to your struggle. You need to team up with someone
who cares about your case and livelihood, like our Mesa criminal defense
lawyers from Naegle & Crider PLC. We are fronted by Attorney Charlie
Naegle, who has established a 10/10 “Superb” Avvo rating and

Types of Marijuana Crimes
Anything you do with marijuana is essentially illegal in Arizona. If you
have been arrested, you will need to know why if you want to build a strong
case in your defense. The more details you can remember that led up to
your arrest, the better. Write them down while they are still in your
memory to go over with our Mesa drug crimes attorneys.
Forms of marijuana crimes include:
Possession for use: If it appears that you were going to use the marijuana found on your person
or property for personal medical or recreational use, this is considered
one of the least severe marijuana drug crimes. However, you can still
be sentenced to up to four years in jail and thousands in fine, as it
is a felony violation.
Sale: Selling marijuana or storing it in such a way that could indicate that
you were going to sell it is often considered a Class 2 felony, carrying
with it up to ten years in prison.
Cultivation: To some degrees, actually growing marijuana illegally is less of a criminal
violation than selling it. Penalties can range from six months to nine
years in prison, as well as high fines.
Trafficking: Moving any amount of marijuana from one location to another, even ounces
of the substance, is usually considered a Class 3 felony and up.
Illegal Marijuana Paraphernalia
In Arizona State, it is even illegal for you to possess, sell, or manufacture
anything related to the use, sale, or cultivation of marijuana. This includes
pipes, bongs, weight measurement equipment, and more. If you are arrested
for paraphernalia crimes, you do not need to be guilty of or charged for
any other sort of marijuana-related drug crimes.
