Arizona still takes a hard stance against marijuana

These days, not everyone views marijuana as "the gateway drug." Many people believe that marijuana is not as harmful and dangerous as it had been made out to be in the past. In fact, some states are starting to decriminalize marijuana by significantly reducing the penalties associated with possession of the drug. And, a few states have even made the possession and sale of marijuana legal, either for medicinal purposes or recreationally.

However, the sale and possession of marijuana is still against the law in Arizona and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. In addition, what is considered drug paraphernalia may be a lot broader than one thinks. For example, if a person is found with marijuana in the pocket of their jacket, that jacket may be deemed drug paraphernalia. This may seem ridiculous, but it does not erase the fact that being convicted of possessing drug paraphernalia will only add to the penalties associated with the original marijuana possession charge.

Too many people are finding that the entire course of their futures are being affected by marijuana charges. Whether it is a marijuana DUI, possession, sale or trafficking of the drug, these charges can lead to serious penalties. A person may be fined, incarcerated and they will have a criminal record that will haunt them long after their sentence has been served.

No one deserves to have their entire future tarnished by drug charges. That is why those facing such charges will want to formulate a strong defense. With help, it may be possible to challenge such charges in a way that leads to the charges being reduced or dropped entirely.
