Marijuana Crimes in Arizona

A Mesa Drug Crime Lawyer Dedicated to Advocating for You

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 legal consequences if you are convicted.

Do not leave things up to chance or up to a public defender that could be indifferent to your circumstances. You need to team up with someone who cares about your case and livelihood, like our Mesa criminal defense lawyer at Naegle Law Firm. Founding attorney Charlie Naegle, who has established a 10/10 “Superb” Avvo rating and an AV® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, has the experience to help you rest easier knowing that your case will be in good hands.

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, it is 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.
