    printer friendly version

    Question: What would happen if you were caught using drugs?

    Answer:

    If you are caught using or possessing drugs, you would be arrested, taken to jail and charged with possession of the drug. The Prosecutor would then have to prove that you knowingly used or were in possession of a usable amount of the illegal drug.

    In Arizona, the law under which you would be prosecuted depends on the type and amount of drug used or carried on one's person. The possible penalties for violation of these laws include fines, prison time, and probation depending on history of convictions and the current violation. The crimres range from a Class 6 to a Class 2 Felony. You can check A.R.S. § 13-3402 (peyote), A.R.S. § 13-3405 (marijuana), A.R.S. § 13-3407 (Dangerous Drugs including methamphetamine and LSD), and A.R.S. § 13-3408 (Narcotics including cocaine and crack) for specific definitions and penalties.

    What I dont understand is why kids around my age would already want to choose to mess up their life at such a young age. There is so much to live for and we havent even begun our lives yet! Could you thorw your life away at my age? My brother just got caught with it and I personally hate his guts now!!

    I think that marijuana is good in some cases but there is some really crazy people in the world and they decide to abuse the fact that people may actually need to smoke it just so they can get out of bed and go to work. But people abuse that fact.
