Question: Will you go to jail if you do crack?

Answer: In Arizona, possession or use of a narcotic drug like crack is a class 4 felony, according to ARS 13-3408(A)(1). A first time offender for this crime cannot be sentenced to prison or jail. He or she must be placed on probation. A second time offender cannot go to prison, but may serve some jail time as a part of his/her probation. Any subsequent conviction for drug possession may result in jail and/or prison time.
