Arizona has very strict laws when it comes to enforcing the sale and distribution of drugs or other controlled substances. The sale of any Controlled Dangerous Substances (CDC) is something that each state in U.S. is required to regulate and Arizona is no different.
According to Arizona law, drugs are classified into 3 main categories: dangerous drugs, narcotics and marijuana. If you are apprehended and have any of these types of drugs on you, you could be arrested and charged with possession with the intent to sell. Even if you had the drugs for your own personal use, you can still be charged with intent to sell based on the quantity in your possession at the time of arrest as well as other circumstantial evidence.
How Drug Crime Attorney Kyle T. Green Can Help
This is where I can make a difference. As a Drug Sale attorney, I will present a defense to challenge the intent to sell charges when your case goes to court. By knocking the charges down to possession only, we avoid some of the heavier penalties and punishments.
I do this by closely scrutinizing the evidence found at the time of your arrest and work to have that evidence thrown out. I’ve worked as a prosecuting attorney before, so I understand the strategies at play in a drug sale case. My goal is to challenge the charges against you, work to have the charges dismissed or reduced, and finally, work to protect you from a harsh sentence. The ultimate goal is to keep you out of jail.
Arizona Drug Classification
In Arizona, drugs are classified into three main categories:
- Dangerous Drugs – LSD, ecstasy, methamphetamines, mescaline, lorazepam, clonazepam, steroids, hallucinogenic mushrooms and more.
- Narcotics – Heroin, cocaine, oxycodone, morphine, opium and more.
There is a statutory threshold that must be met in order for a person to be charged with possession with intent to sell or distribute. Basically, if the amount of drugs the person is found with does not meet this threshold, they cannot be charged with intent to sell.
Penalties for possession with the intent to sell include prison time up to 5 years based on how much was in your possession and what type of drugs you were in possession of.
