Arizona has arguably tougher drug laws than most states. Should you find yourself at the receiving end of a drug-related charge in Arizona, you will need to find an experienced attorney immediately.
The attorneys at Lane, Hupp, & Crowley, PLC, have handled numerous drug crimes cases in Arizona. With almost 40 years of combined experience and a former deputy county attorney on our team, we can guard against the potential impact to your life, liberty, reputation and future.
Unlike many states that have recently lessened penalties for drug offenses, Arizona law still provides harsh penalties and lengthy sentences for most drug offenses.
For example, the law considers the possession of any “usable” amount of illegal drugs a felony (no matter how small).
If the amount found in your possession exceeds the “threshold amount,” a conviction will result in a mandatory prison sentence. The “threshold amount” for each drug under Arizona law is as follows:
Possessing drug paraphernalia or anything used to ingest, prepare, plant or store drugs in Arizona is also illegal.
Our lawyers have successfully undertaken numerous drug possession cases. In some cases, alternatives to harsh sentences are available. Many drug possession cases are eligible for special sentencing under Arizona law if they are personal possession cases and do not involve methamphetamine.
Should police arrest you for any of the drug offenses mentioned above, the most important thing you can do is to exercise your right to remain silent as well as your right to counsel. We have defended cases in courts across the state and have a considerable track record of success.
