Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale

Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale – ARS 13-3407 is a class 2 felony in Arizona. A dangerous drug is defined as illegal drugs other than marijuana or narcotics. Dangerous drugs can include steroids, ecstasy, LSD, methamphetamine, GHB, hallucinogenic mushrooms, clonazepam, mescaline, lorazepam, and others.

Under ARS 13-3407 a person shall not knowingly:

  1. Possess or use a dangerous drug.
  2. Possess a dangerous drug for sale.
  3. Possess equipment or chemicals, or both, for the purpose of manufacturing a dangerous drug.
  4. Manufacture a dangerous drug.
  5. Administer a dangerous drug to another person.
  6. Obtain or procure the administration of a dangerous drug by fraud, deceit, misrepresentation, or subterfuge.
  7. Transport for sale, import into this state or offer to transport for sale or import into this state, sell, transfer, or offer to sell or transfer a dangerous drug.

However, ARS 13-3407 does not specify what the definition is for “possession for sale.” In addition, it also does not define what “transportation for sale” is. The difference between possession and possession for sale is the amount of the drug that you have in your possession. If the amount of drugs that were found on the defendant is over the threshold amount, it will usually be assumed that there was an intent to sell involved.

Threshold Amounts

  • Methamphetamine – 9 grams
  • Cocaine – 9 grams
  • LSD – 1/2 ml (liquid form), 50 dosage units (blotter form)
  • Marijuana – 2 pounds
  • PCP – 4 grams or 50 ml

If convicted, penalties for Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale in Arizona can be severe and can include jail or prison time, large fines, and other consequences. This is why you should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney if you have been charged with this crime. Although there are no guarantees, an experienced drug charge attorney may be able to get the charges reduced or in some cases, even dismissed.
