Phoenix Drug Possession Charges Could Mean a Felony on Your Record

Arizona drug laws cover the possession of many types of illegal drugs, including marijuana, crystal meth, heroin, morphine, prescription drugs, cocaine, and others. If you are found to be in possession of any of these drugs, you could be facing felony drug charges in Phoenix. In fact, as experienced Phoenix drug offense attorneys, we can tell you that most possession charges in Phoenix are felony charges, and previous drug convictions on your record could mean a serious increase in the penalties you suffer for the new charges. For some serious drug offenses, you could even be facing life in prison. And don’t expect to be treated with a “slap on the wrist” as a first-time drug offender in Arizona, either.

In your Arizona drug possession case, you can expect a difference in your expected sentence depending on:

  • The type of drug you were caught with
  • The amount of the drug you were caught with
  • If you have any previous convictions
  • If you have additional charges with the possession charges
