Preparing a Drug-Related Defense
In Arizona, drug offenses are among the most commonly prosecuted crimes. These offenses include possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia for personal use, possession of dangerous drugs for sale, and the manufacturing of narcotic drugs.
The range of penalties for drug offenses depends on the drug, quantity and purpose of possession. It is more serious, for example, to be charged with possessing marijuana with the intent to sell than possessing marijuana for personal use. In all cases, if a defendant has any prior felony convictions, a conviction for transportation of marijuana for sale can result in vastly increased punishment.
Our objective is to weigh the evidence and develop a strategy that will significantly reduce the charges or clear them completely.
