Possession of Controlled Substances in Mesa
Drug possession is not taken lightly in Arizona. Even first-time offenders can be charged with hefty fines and extensive jail time.
The state of Arizona classifies illegal drugs into three categories, including:
- Narcotics: those found with cocaine, heroin, opium, morphine, oxycodone, and more, can be charged with a Class 5 Felony and could face up to 18 months in prison
- Marijuana: possession of less than two pounds is charged as a Class 6 felony, which can result in up to one year in prison
- Dangerous drugs: this category refers to drugs like LSD, methamphetamines, mescaline, steroids, GHB, ecstasy, and more, and will be charged as a class 1 misdemeanor with up to six months in jail and a maximum fine of $2,500
Depending on which category of substance is in your possession, the amount of drugs, the paraphernalia you have or do not have, and other factors involved, you face a variety of punishments and penalties if convicted.
