Can someone be imprisoned for possession of marijuana in Arizona? If so, how much jail time could be imposed?

Medical marijuana is legal in Arizona. However, there are still archaic laws in place that punish possession of marijuana under various circumstances. Even the possession of a small amount of marijuana can sometimes be construed as a felony with a fine of up to $150,000. To find out more about Arizona’s existing marijuana laws, see the summary of Marijuana Laws in Arizona.

How much marijuana is enough to get slammed with a charge for intent to sell?

Remarkably, you may be charged with intent to sell while possessing or transporting virtually any amount of marijuana. Circumstances of which you are not even aware, such as the location of a school or even a school bus, may substantially increase the possible charges, penalties and fines you are subject to.

Is driving under the influence of marijuana illegal in Arizona?

Yes. In fact, thousands of people face “marijuana DUI” charges in Arizona and other states every single year. Even though there is no universally recognized medical standard for determining marijuana-based impairment – and many people dispute whether “impaired driving” happens at all for marijuana users – it can be a misdemeanor or even a felony.
