If you've been arrested for possession or distribution of ecstasy (also called Adam, ecstasy, XTC, E, and X, MDMA), you could face serious drug crime penalties. Proposition 300 allows for treatment programs for those who are found to be in possession of drugs for their own use, and the law names the threshold amount for each drug. For ecstasy, the threshold amount allowed for the application of this proposition is 4 grams of the drug. Any arrest for possession of this drug requires a skilled Phoenix ecstasy lawyer.

Ecstasy Penalties in Arizona
When an individual is found to possess more than the threshold amount of ecstasy, they will be charged with possession with the intent to distribute. It doesn't matter to the prosecutor whether you claim that you had no intention to sell it; you will be facing serious felony charges and if convicted, could spend years in state prison. The penalty for a first offense for this offense can be up to 5 years in prison.
