Question: What is the penalty for growing marijuana in arizona? I am growing two small plants without the intent to sell?

Answer: Growing marijuana is a crime because the United States and Arizona both prohibit (do not allow) marijuana to be possessed, except in very rare cases where marijuana is prescribed by a doctor for a very limited medicinal purpose when someone is very ill.
The penalty for possession depends upon a number of factors which can be found in A.R.S. § 13-3405.

Alcohol is a LEGAL drug, the question of most used drug is referring to the most 'illegally' used drug. If you include Alcohol, you would have to use medicines too, I'm sure that there are many legal, over-the-counter drugs out there that are used more than Alcohol.

Weed is not nearly as bad for you as people say. Its not that addictive, it kills fewer brain cells per ounce than getting slapped in the face does, and it doesnt carry the toxins that alcohol and tobacco have. They should ban tobacco, and allow marijuana.

Haha, I love it when people are brainwashed by the gov't. Marijuana isnt as bad as alcohol or cigerettes. So why isn't it legal? Simple, Not enough people have yet stood up and said they want it legal. Also even more funny is that otc perscription medications are most the time worse for you than marijuana is as well. Anyone who thinks very badly about Marijuana has been brainwashed by there parents early on or the gov't. either way it's pretty funny.
