case comes under state law. Arizona criminal law divides illicit drugs
into the following categories:
Marijuana: The resin from a genus cannabis plant and seeds capable of germination
Prescription-only drugs: Approved drugs generally considered safe under a doctor’s supervision
but that are nevertheless illegal without a valid prescription
Narcotics: Highly addictive substances that reduce pain, cause drowsiness and induce sleep
Peyote: Hallucinogenic cactus with the active ingredient of mescaline
Vapor-releasing substances: Substances that release toxic fumes
Dangerous drugs: Named drugs that are considered hazardous, including hallucinogenics such
as mescaline, stimulants such as amphetamines, depressants such as lorazepam,
and anabolic steroids
Whether your case is a misdemeanor or a felony and what degree it is depends
on the type of drug and the weight in your possession.
