Under Arizona law, meth is considered a "dangerous drug.” The drugs included under the classification of “dangerous drug” in Arizona include, but are not limited to:
- Methamphetamine ("meth" or "crystal meth")
- LSD ("acid")
- Hallucinogenic mushrooms
- Lorazepam (Ativan)
- Anabolic Steroids
- Clonazepam (Klonopin)
Dangerous drug crimes come with their own sentencing guidelines, and even possession is charged as a felony. If you have previous convictions on your record or you are charged with selling or manufacturing meth, the penalties can be even steeper. A Phoenix meth lawyer can help you build a strong defense, and potentially reduce the penalties you suffer or have your case thrown out altogether.
The outcome of your Phoenix meth arrest depends on many factors, including your previous conviction history, if there was a weapon involved, if it is determined that you intended to sell or distribute, the strength of the evidence in the case, etc. An experienced Phoenix drug lawyer is ready to help you sort through your options at 1-888-929-5292.
