Phoenix Drug Distribution Attorney

Drug distribution laws in Arizona can be extremely harsh, depending on the circumstances of the particular case. The laws that regulate drugs are found in Title 13, Chapter 34 of the Revised Arizona Statutes. In general, it is illegal to possess, use, produce, sale or transport controlled substances. Distribution refers to the transfer or delivery of controlled substances and is used in combination with other words to describe drug “movement.”

  • “Distribute” means the actual, constructive or attempted transfer, delivery or sale of, or dispensing to another
  • A.R.S. 13-3405 – illegal to possess, use, produce, sale or transport marijuana
  • A.R.S. 13-3406 – illegal to possess, use, administer, acquire, sell, manufacture, transport prescription-only drugs
  • A.R.S. 13-3407-   illegal to possess, use, administer, acquire, sell, manufacture, transport dangerous drugs
  • A.R.S. 13-3408 – illegal to possess, use, administer, acquire, sell, manufacture, transport narcotic drugs

If you have been arrested for the distribution of drugs, it is essential to obtain the legal representation of an experienced and knowledgeable Phoenix drug lawyer. For many years, attorney Jeremy Geigle has been successfully representing clients who have been arrested for drug distribution.

Arizona Threshold Amounts:

In Arizona “threshold amounts” are of extreme importance in drug distribution cases. A.R.S. Sec 13-3401 refers to the threshold amounts of the drug. This is a means of quantifying and measuring the controlled substances. When an individual possesses the minimum statutory threshold amount of a specific drug, or greater, they will be subject to mandatory prison sentencing and not be eligible for probation and drug treatment.

Threshold amounts in Arizona – very important:

  • Amphetamine and Methamphetamine: 9 grams or greater
  • Cocaine: 9 grams powder, 750 mg rock
  • Heroin: 1 gram
  • LSD ½ ml liquid, 50 doses
  • PCP – 4 grams or 50- ml
  • Marijuana – 2 pounds

If you are convicted of drug possession with intent to sell, manufacture, transport, or otherwise distribute drugs, and if you are over the threshold amount, a mandatory prison sentence will be imposed. A.R.S. 13-3419 will negate the possibility for probation. Attorney Jeremy Geigle aggressively represents those who have been charged with drug offenses. Attorney Geigle will carefully scrutinize all relevant information pertaining to the arrest, including how evidence was obtained, handled and stored and whether your constitutional rights were violated. Evidence may be excluded in some cases, resulting in a dismissal, reduced charge or plea arrangement.
