Cultivation or Growing of Marijuana | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Chandler Marijuana Cultivation Lawyers

Many people believe that with the passage of Prop 207 in Arizona that marijuana is now legal. Well, not exactly. It’s true that adults can now possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana in Arizona. But, if marijuana were truly legal, you would be able to possess, grow, sell, and buy as much as you wanted, much like tomatoes, potatoes, and carrots, but that’s not the case. What Prop 207 actually did was decriminalize marijuana with limits on how much you can possess, buy, sell, and grow. It should also be noted that marijuana is still illegal at the Federal level.

But you can still get into legal trouble in Arizona if you are not within the limits of Prop 207. For example, you can also grow a limited amount of marijuana for personal use. If you are of legal age (21 years of age or older), you are allowed up to 6 marijuana plants in your home, and if there are multiple adults in the home, you can have up to 12 marijuana plants. Keep in mind, this is 12 total plants per household, not 6 plants per adult.

Arizona Revised Statutes § 36-2852 legalizes possessing or consuming marijuana, but with limits. If you are growing more than what is the legal limit, you can still be charged with cultivation or growing of marijuana in Arizona. This is a more serious crime, unlike simple possession of marijuana for personal use.

In addition, if you are growing marijuana, it must be for personal use. It is still illegal to sell marijuana unless you are a dispensary with proper licensing. However, you are allowed to give other adults marijuana if it is not sold to them. Also, the marijuana plants must be kept secure, and not visible to the public or minors. The grow area must be a closed enclosure that can be locked.

Private sales of marijuana are still not allowed under Prop 207, and there are new restrictions for dispensary owners. So, even if you are licensed to sell marijuana in Arizona, you need to be careful and make sure you understand what the law is, in regard to Prop 207.

If you are facing marijuana charges of any kind, it is important that you consult with a criminal defense attorney. A criminal defense attorney may be able to make the case that the amount in your possession was not over the legal limit or have the charges reduced. The lawyers at the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm have been representing people charged with marijuana crimes for nearly 3 decades.

Dear Kate Pierce,I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to you for making... the decision to take Tim's case. From the day one, our very first phone meeting I knew that we had a chance at getting better solution for my brother Tim's self Defense case. Your expertise, prowess and your personality gave us confidence that you are the one who can help Tim. I am writing this letter to you to express my family and my sincere thanks for your professional representation on his Self Defense case in the court, however this was a very stressful and lengthy battle specially during pandemic, but you gave us the needed confidence to stay focused and positive and more importantly you treated us as a friend not a client. You did such a great job in all aspects of the proceedings. We were frustrated with the cancellation of court's appointments, Pandemic situation and isolation and afraid of discrimination because of language barriers and believe, but you stand strong and ended the battle and we are happy and thankful to you and your firm.In the end, it all worked out well. I appreciate your hard work and wishing you all the best.(The work of your heart, the work of taking time, to listen, to help, is also your gift to the whole of the world). Jack Kornfieldread more
