Arizona law has several classifications of drugs, including dangerous drugs, narcotic drugs, and marijuana.
Dangerous drugs include, but are not limited to methamphetamine, LSD, anabolic steroids, Ecstasy, and prescription sedatives like Valium, Xanax, and Klonopin. If you are caught in possession of dangerous drugs (A.R.S. 13-3407) you can be charged with a Class 4 Felony, which can result in a maximum sentence of 3.75 years. For a full list of dangerous drugs in Arizona, refer to A.R.S. 13-3401(6).
Narcotic drugs include cocaine, heroin, oxycodone, morphine, opium, and other substances. Being charged with possession of narcotics (A.R.S. 13-3408) is also a Class 4 Felony and can result in a prison sentence up to 3.75 years. For a full list of narcotic drugs in Arizona, refer to A.R.S. 13-3401(20).
Although marijuana is less addictive than dangerous and narcotic drugs, Arizona law is tough on marijuana possession. Being caught with 2 pounds of marijuana or less, is a Class 6 Felony and can result in a prison sentence up to 2 years (A.R.S. 13-3405).
