Drug prosecutions in the State of Arizona often are categorized as possession of drugs for personal use, or possession of drugs for sale. Possession for personal use charges can have a significant negative impact on your life. Depending on the classification of drug involved and your prior criminal history, penalties can range from probation to prison. In certain circumstances, diversion of the charges is also a possibility that an experienced criminal defense attorney can pursue.

Charges of Possession of Drugs for Sale requires a mandatory prison sentence if convicted, even for first time offenders. Successful defenses of these charges often depend on challenging the legality of stops, interrogations, and searches. Illegal search and seizure defenses are very fact specific and require a deep understanding of applicable law. Lack of reasonable suspicion and-or probable cause are fruitful areas to explore and attack. An experienced criminal defense attorney knowledgeable and up to date in the area of Constitutional Law is critical to your defense.

Classifications of drugs break down into Marijuana, Dangerous Drugs and Narcotic Drugs. The most common examples of Dangerous Drugs are methamphetamines and amphetamines. Narcotic drugs usually deal with cocaine and its derivatives; crack and crank. Heroin is also classified as a narcotic, as are narcotic prescription drugs such as Oxycontin (Oxycodone) and Percocet.

Were you properly read your Miranda rights? Can the government prove drug possession beyond a reasonable doubt? In cases of prescription medication, did you have the authority to possess the drug?
