Distribution of Drugs

Drug Distribution Lawyers In Phoenix

Penalties for Drug Crimes in Arizona

Just as possession of controlled substances is illegal in the United States, so is the distribution of such drugs. In the Arizona Revised Statutes (2011) §13-3401, distribution is defined under "dispense" and means "to distribute, leave with, give away, dispose of or deliver a controlled substance." Penalties for this offense change depending on the type of drug and the amount in question. Basic prison sentences for each drug are as follows:

  • Peyote (§13-3402) - 6 months to 1.5 years in prison
  • Marijuana (§13-3405) - 6 months to 3 years in prison, depending on the amount or marijuana being distributed
  • Prescription drugs (§13-3406) - 6 months in prison
  • Dangerous drugs (§13-3407) - 1.5 to 3 years in prison
  • Narcotic drugs (§13-3408) - 1.5 to 3 years in prison

Defense Strategies for Drug Distribution Charges

Although most charges of drug distribution are deserved, there are still many instances where a person is wrongfully accused of the offense. If you have been arrested for distributing drugs, there could be a defense strategy available to you. In order for a person to be convicted of a drug crime, it must be proven that the drug was theirs, that it was in their possession or that they were knowingly assisting in the distribution of the substance.
