Tom Dean on Marijuana DUI's

Marijuana DUI

Unlike alcohol, there is no objective standard for assessing driving impaired by marijuana in Arizona. If you are stopped while driving and the officer “suspects” you are under the influence, you may face charges. THC can be detected weeks after use, so this charge is all too common.

Possession / Sales / Transportation

Possession with intent to sell is a felony offense. Intent to sell can lead to jail time of two years to nearly four years depending on marijuana amount. However, remember that intent to sell is often charged when misdemeanor possession may be all that the facts support.

Cultivation of Marijuana

Cultivation is the crime related to growing marijuana, either for personal use or with intent to sell. Plants, growing equipment and even seeds can be used as elements of evidence someone engaged in cultivation. However, police must have probable cause to make a cultivation arrest.
