Common Drug Crimes in Mesa

The most common drug crimes in Mesa involve underage possession of marijuana, dangerous drugs, paraphernalia or narcotics. Although those are most common, we handle all types of drug charges in Arizona that deal with possession, manufacture and distribution of drugs.

You can learn more about drug offenses in Arizona by viewing Chapter 34 of the Arizona Revised Statutes’ Criminal Code.

Possession of Marijuana

As of 2021, Arizona has legalized the possession of marijuana for recreational use. However, there are still laws and regulations that must be followed in order to avoid legal consequences.

Under Arizona law, individuals who are at least 21 years of age may possess up to one ounce of marijuana or 5 grams of marijuana concentrate. It is illegal to possess more than this amount, and doing so can result in criminal charges.

Possession of Dangerous Drugs

According to ARS 13-3407, it’s illegal for anyone to possess, use, manufacture, obtain or transport dangerous drugs. You can see a full list of dangerous drugs here; in general these drugs are typically narcotics that are not marijuana. It’s also illegal to possess narcotic drugs without a prescription in Arizona.

Possession of these drugs is considered a felony offense, though it is possible to have your charged reduced to a misdemeanor offense with the right defense. These types of drug crimes are taken extremely seriously in Arizona, especially when methamphetamine is involved.

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

If you were arrested in Mesa with a pipe, bong, syringe, rolling papers or other drug items, you can be charged with possession of drug paraphernalia (ARS 13-3415).

Many times, the accused aren’t always aware of what classifies as paraphernalia, which makes this type of case difficult to understand without the right legal help. Our team can help you determine your options and fully explain the implications of your case during your free consultation.
