Arizona Possession of Drug Paraphernalia Lawyers
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia is a Class 6 Felony Under Arizona Law
In 1996, Arizona voters passed Proposition 200. Under Prop 200, judges are prohibited from sending first- or second-time nonviolent drug offenders to prison, even if these convictions are for felony offenses. A judge may only sentence the defendant to a term of probation and mandatory drug treatment.
TASC is an adult deferred prosecution program that takes 3 to 6 months to complete. In TASC, you will be required to provide 1 random urine test per month, 1 three-hour drug and alcohol abuse education program, and fees between $300 to $700. Once TASC is completed, your case will be completely dismissed.
It is imperative that you contact an experienced Arizona drug paraphernalia attorney who can help you navigate the TASC program and its strict requirements. Call Oliverson & Huss Law PLLC at (480) 351-2228 today.
If you have any prior drug conviction for sale or transportation of drugs, promoting prison contraband, driving under the influence of drugs, or any methamphetamine drug-related offense, then you are ineligible under Prop 200 and could face jail and/or prison time.
