Possession of marijuana in Arizona is typically charged as a class 6 felony. If the marijuana is found with other paraphernalia such as a pipe, an additional class 6 felony would be charged for possession of that paraphernalia. If you were pulled over for a DUI after smoking marijuana, then you will likely be charged with a DUI Drugs wherein your license can be suspended for 1 year and you could be facing jail and large fines.
Depending on how the case is processed and your past criminal history, if any, you may be given an opportunity to get rid of the drug charges through testing clean as part of the TASC program. You should consult with an attorney about whether or not you qualify for the TASC program and how to best handle your case.
