Phoenix Marijuana Charges Attorney

In Arizona, all marijuana related activity is illegal. You can get a felony conviction for:

  • Possession of marijuana
  • Possession of marijuana to be sold
  • Producing marijuana
  • Importing marijuana
  • Transporting marijuana

Possession of marijuana is a class 6 felony. If the defendant has no prior criminal record, it is likely that an arrest for marijuana will result in the opportunity to comply with the diversion program. Graduation from the diversion program will result in a dismissal of possession charges. It is essential however, to make the effort to request admission into the diversion program or it may not be made available to you. If you were arrested for a marijuana charge, it is essential to obtain qualified and experienced legal representation – your rights, your freedom and your future are at stake.
