No matter which particular marijuana related offense you have been charged with, it is essential to hire a Phoenix drug crime attorney with the experience and know-how to maximize your chances of getting your charges reduced or dismissed. Although some marijuana cases involving personal possession may qualify for the alternative sentencing requirements of Arizona's "Proposition 200," a marijuana conviction can result in jail time, probation, community service, and a mark on your criminal record. Arizona's manditory sentencing laws may dictate a very severe sentence if convicted, so it is vital that you have a lawyer on your side negotiating on your behalf and making sure your rights are protected.
