Drug Charges/Crimes & Illegal Search & Seizure
The state of Arizona has some of the strictest drug laws in the country for both possession and selling. If convicted, one can face significant amounts of prison time.
Possession of Dangerous Drugs for example, is a class four felony pursuant to A.R.S. 13-3407. Selling or transporting dangerous drugs for sale is a prison mandatory offense in Arizona even if it is the first time you have ever been in trouble with the law. Dangerous Drugs for Sale carries a mandatory prison sentence of no less than 5 years up to 15 years flat for the first drug sale offense under ARS 13-3407(e). If you have a conviction for Dangerous Drug sales then any subsequent conviction for Dangerous Drugs for Sales has a sentencing exposure of 10-15-20 years in the department of corrections pursuant to ARS 13-3407(e) These would be flat calendar years, meaning you serve every single day of that sentence in prison.
Dangerous drugs, pursuant to A.R.S. 13-3401, can be any number of listed drugs or chemical components. Several examples would be methamphetamine, MDA, LSD, Mescaline, mushroom (psilocybin), bath salts, MDMA, and many more.
Narcotic drug possession and sales are also heavily penalized in Arizona pursuant to A.R.S. 13-3408. Narcotic drugs can be any opiate, cocaine, crack, fentanyl, carfentanil, clonitazene, and even cannabis pursuant to A.R.S. 13-3401. Use or possession of prescription drugs without the valid prescription pursuant to A.R.S. 13-3406.
