Marijuana Possession Attorney in Tucson

Avoid Hefty Fines with the Help of Our Criminal Defense Lawyer

Although in some states, carrying just a small amount of marijuana would not present a large problem, in the state of Arizona, possession of even the tiniest portion could come with severe consequences. Not only will being convicted cost a lot of money in the form of fines or time served through community service or spent in jail, depending on the circumstances, but it will negatively impact your ability to be employed or further educated in the future.

Even if you have a perfectly legal reason for carrying marijuana as medicine, you could be unjustly arrested anyways. Fortunately, our marijuana possession lawyer in Tucson has a repertoire of strategies for defending those who have been needlessly accused of a serious crime.

What Counts as a Marijuana Product?

In the state of Arizona, what counts as marijuana is any product that is related to cannabis. Even if a product only contains the smallest fraction or percentage of the plant, or a minuscule portion of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it counts under the classification of marijuana.

Charges for Marijuana Crimes of Possession

The exact convictions in relationship to marijuana charges all depend on the defendant’s particular circumstances regarding the drug. If the person is charged with possessing marijuana, the consequences are quite different – if you have a personal amount of cannabis, you can be charged with a felony that is Class 6 or higher. The benefit of having a strong attorney, however, is that they can often advocate for turning this charge into a mere misdemeanor, especially if this is the first time you have ever been convicted.

One exception to the standard against possessing marijuana is the scenario where you have a medical condition that legally allows you to possess 2.5 ounces of marijuana at a time for medical support. In the event that you did not have your written certification prescribed from your physician on the day you were caught having marijuana, our lawyer can demonstrate to the court that you do, in fact, have the required documents and are thus not at fault.

The two most common charges against marijuana possession include:

  • Possession of any marijuana in any degree – In the state of Arizona, possessing the drug for any non-medical purposes is usually charged with a Class 6 felony.

  • Transportation of any amount of marijuana – Arizona state laws edict that even carrying the smallest amount of marijuana counts as illegal transportation. Therefore, if police find any in your vehicle, you will be treated just as severely, if not more harshly, and prosecutors will try to increase the consequence of charges so that you could even face a Class 2 felony.
