Arizona drug possession laws cover many illegal drugs, including:
- Methamphetamines ("crystal meth")
- Narcotic drugs, such as heroin and morphine
- Prescription drugs
- Nitrous oxide
- Toxic vapor-releasing substances, as used for "huffing"
Sentencing for Arizona drug possession varies quite a bit depending on the type of drug, the quantity, and any past conviction history. Some drug offenses, termed "serious drug offenses" by Arizona law, can come with a sentence of life imprisonment.
