Possession for Sale

Phoenix Drug Sales Lawyer

Possession with Intent to Sell in AZ

It is considered to be a criminal offense to be in possession of a controlled substance. This, however, is just if it is determined that you are in possession of the drugs for your own personal use. The crime can be enhanced should it be determined that you had a different purpose altogether for the drugs.

Law enforcement officers will be on the lookout for red flags that they believe indicate that you had different intentions. Such things as having large amounts, owning packaging, having scales or even having a large amount of cash could be viewed as indications that you were likely intending to sell or distribute. While these actions of law enforcement are done with the best of intentions, they can unfortunately become overzealous - leaving innocent people as the ones left to pay the price.

It is all too often that a person who was guilty of possessing drugs for personal use, will find themselves facing enhanced penalties. In some cases, the accused could have not possessed any drugs at all. So what does one do? While it can be easy to become overwhelmed, it is vastly important that you do not hesitate to get the involvement of a Phoenix drug possession lawyer that you can trust to help you through this trying time.

By getting an experienced attorney involved, you will be able to take the necessary steps towards combating the charges and fighting for your desirable outcome.

Phoenix Laws on Drug Dealing

The Arizona Criminal Code draws a severe line when it comes to the penalties associated with drug crimes. For example, according to §13-3402, it is considered to be a class 6 felony to be in possession or to sell the controlled substance of peyote. Should the possession be for the sale of a narcotic drug, it will be considered a class 2 felony. The law also goes on to describe the individual charges for the different classifications of drugs.

Arizona classifies illegal drugs into three main categories: dangerous drugs, narcotics, and marijuana. Each category will come with a different set of penalties. Due to the severity of these charges, it is important that you do not hesitate to get the involvement of a Phoenix drug possession attorney from the legal team at the Knowles Law Firm, PLC as soon as possible.
