Distribution of Drugs | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Chandler Drug Distribution Lawyer

Distribution of drugs is a felony offense in Arizona. Under ARS 13-3407 a person shall not knowingly:

  • Possess or use a dangerous drug.
  • Possess a dangerous drug for sale.
  • Possess equipment or chemicals, or both, for the purpose of manufacturing a dangerous drug.

A person who violates:

  • Subsection A, paragraph 1 of this section is guilty of a class 4 felony. Unless the drug involved is lysergic acid diethylamide, methamphetamine, amphetamine, or phencyclidine or the person was previously convicted of a felony offense or a violation of this section or section 13-3408, the court on motion of the state, considering the nature and circumstances of the offense, for a person not previously convicted of any felony offense or a violation of this section or section 13-3408 may enter a judgment of conviction for a class 1 misdemeanor and make disposition accordingly or may place the defendant on probation in accordance with chapter 9 of this title and refrain from designating the offense as a felony or misdemeanor until the probation is successfully terminated. The offense shall be treated as a felony for all purposes until the court enters an order designating the offense a misdemeanor.
  • Subsection A, paragraph 2 of this section is guilty of a class 2 felony.
  • Subsection A, paragraph 3 of this section is guilty of a class 3 felony, except that if the offense involved methamphetamine, the person is guilty of a class 2 felony.

Just mere possession of drugs in Arizona is a serious felony offense, but if the amount of drugs in possession is more than what would be considered for personal use, you could be charged with the more serious crime of distribution of drugs. In Arizona, the type of drug in question is broken down into 4 categories:

  • Dangerous drugs
  • Narcotics
  • Prescription drugs
  • Marijuana

Dangerous drugs are the most serious offense. Generally speaking, dangerous drugs are defined as any narcotic other than marijuana. These drugs would include:

  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Amphetamines
  • Anabolic steroids
  • Hallucinogenic drugs
  • Certain prescription drugs

Because this is a serious crime, it is important to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer if you have been charged with the distribution of drugs in Arizona. There may be a legal defense against these charges that an experienced drug defense attorney may be able to raise.

I just want to tell you about my interactions with the men and women at AOR. First and foremost, I... have never NEEDED their services. I hope to NEVER need their services. This said, I have called and written on various occasions with a question or two about this and that, and have always been treated like I'm a member of the family... of anyone in their office with whom I speak. They are professional and courteous, yes, of course, but I'm always impressed by how they don't rush me off the phone, how they let me talk (which may take me a few minutes to explain what I'm looking to find out and to get the point I finally ask my question) and, before concluding our call, they always ask if I've gotten the exact information I wanted -- that is, the reason for my calling in the first place has been addressed to my satisfaction. I'm so sick and tired of paying money to people, then needing to talk to them at some point, and feeling like I'm inconveniencing them; I feel like "Um, you realize I'm paying you money to provide me services/information, right?" Not with Attorneys on Retainer. Honest to God, it is such a relief, to me personally, that I can say "Talk to my attorney" or "I'll be in touch with my attorney" or "I'll have my attorney call you," as a situation may warrant, and have it be true... knowing that AOR has my back. They've even told me, very specifically, if I'm ever in doubt as to whether call the office number or call the emergency number, just use the latter to be safe... stressing to me that they don't want me to worry about which number to call, that if I feel I need some kind of legal help, to just call them.I must say, I've been a member of other organizations (and still am, in a few cases) that say they offer legal help to people who have been involved in a shooting. I have dropped some of them already and am letting the other memberships expire by not renewing. There are just SO MANY excellent, TRULY excellent reasons to sign on with AOR, and an equal number of reasons why you shouldn't waste your money with other organizations. If you've been researching the topic of legal help and self-defense shootings, please, PLEASE, do yourself a favor and give a REALLY HARD LOOK at Attorneys on Retainer. I'm being very, very sincere when I say you aren't likely to ever have any regrets if you hire them.read more
