Arizona Marijuana Laws
Under Arizona law, it's a crime to use, possess for sale, produce,
transport, import, or transfer marijuana. Being caught with less than
two pounds that is not possessed for sale is charged as a Class 6 felony
which may result in jail or prison time, probation, and a fine. If the
drug is possessed for sale, it is charged as a Class 4 felony. From less
than two pounds, the felony charges increase as the possessed amounts
increase. The most serious charge concerning marijuana cultivation and
possession for sale is a Class 3 felony.
Even more serious is the charge of transporting for sale, importing, selling,
or transferring marijuana with a weight of two pounds or more which will
result in a Class 2 felony charge. The fine for marijuana charges is $750
or three times the value of the marijuana as determined by the court.
Jail or prison time generally ranges from six months up to seven years,
depending on the circumstances.
