Phoenix Marijuana Cultivation Lawyers

Arizona Cultivation Laws

Since 2010, the state of Arizona has allowed the cultivation and use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. However, there are very strict guidelines that must be followed in order for such actions to be legal. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), marijuana can be cultivated in non-profit dispensaries and distributed to registered users within a 25-mile radius. Guidelines for the registration and certification of these dispensaries can be found in the A.R.S. §36-2804.

For registered users of medical cannabis, it is legal to obtain medical marijuana from a local approved dispensary. However, if there is no dispensary located within a 25-mile radius of their residency, they may cultivate their own plants with approval from the ADHS. For dispensaries and individuals alike, all plants must be cultivated in an enclosed and locked area according to ADHS regulation. If an approved dispensary or registered user does not comply with these guidelines, or if an unregistered individual cultivates marijuana, they could face charges of a drug crime and face months or years in prison.

Penalties For Illegal Marijuana Cultivation

The A.R.S. §13-3405 states that unlawful cultivation of marijuana plants is a felony, the severity of which changes depending on the amount of marijuana in question:

  • Less than 2 pounds: Class 5 felony, 9 months to 2 years in prison
  • More than 2 but less than 4 pounds: Class 4 felony, 1.5 to 3 years in prison
  • More than 4 pounds: Class 3 felony, 2.5 to 7 years in prison

If you have been arrested for cultivation, fight for your rights. As a registered user of medical marijuana, you may be able to fight for a reduction in charges, or a dismissal if there is not dispensary near your home. A Phoenix drug crime lawyer could provide the representation you need, and could also fight for you if you are facing charges and are not a registered user.
