Arizona Drug Possession Laws
Getting charged with drug possession can be a very scary ordeal. The criminal process is confusing and stressful. When facing charges like these it pays to have an Arizona drug attorney who understands what you are going through and can help you along the way. Call for a consultation on your drug case today.

Arizona has some tough and complex drug laws. Sentences range greatly depending on the circumstances of your case. How much you are caught with determines whether you will be charged with simple possession or if the charge will be elevated to possession with intent to distribute.

Arizona classifies its drugs in a pretty basic way. There are three main types: dangerous drugs, narcotics, and marijuana. The lists are not exhaustive
• Dangerous drugs include substances like: LSD, ecstacy, methamphetamines, steroids, hallucinogenic mushrooms, GHB, mescaline, clonazepam, lorazepam
• Narcotics are: cocaine, heroin, opium, morphine, oxycodone, and more
• Marijuana is marijuana (pot, weed, etc.).

How you are charged and your potential sentence depends on the substance and quantity you were caught with. If this is not your first conviction, a qualified attorney can help you get more favorable results in court. Arizona judges consider repeat offenders in a more severe light than first timers. If you were given another opportunity and failed by picking up another drug charge, expect to be sentenced to stiffer penalties. If you are innocent of the charges brought against you or if you are nervous about getting fair treatment in the Arizona court,  you need an experienced Arizona Criminal attorney. A good lawyer can help you understand what your charges mean and discuss your options.
