Drug Possession

Possessing a controlled substance without a prescription is illegal. The type of drug in possession and its quantity matters for the charges and penalties. A possession arrest can be made if any type of illegal substance is found on a person or in a person’s house, car, or office. Arizona has different classes of felony, and each conviction carries a different sentence.

If you face a drug possession charge, you may spend time in jail. The penalty depends on the kind of drug and how much of the drug of which you were in possession. Repeat offenders have a greater likelihood of jail time.

Drug Distribution

Selling, transporting, and distributing narcotics, marijuana, or other dangerous drugs is a class 2 felony in Arizona. The penalty for a class 2 felony could be up to five years in prison.
