Marijuana Defense

Marijuana may be less harmful and less dangerous than many legal drugs, but the punishments for sale or possession of marijuana are severe. In Arizona, possessing 4 pounds or more of marijuana is a Class 2 Felony, which carries a mandatory prison sentence of 3 to 12.5 years.

Phoenix marijuana lawyer, O. Joseph Chornenky, has devoted 30 years to helping people avoid such severe punishments. If you or a loved one is facing a marijuana charge, the lawyers of O. Joseph Chornenky, P.C., will meet with you and immediately begin working on your case.

Marijuana Law

Both federal and Arizona state laws about marijuana are harsh. In Arizona, possessing between 2 and 4 pounds of marijuana is a Class 4 Felony, which may lead to 1 to 3.75 years in prison. Marijuana cultivation, trafficking, transporting, or possessing with intent to sell can carry even tougher punishments.

Attorney O. Joseph Chornenky believes strongly in his work defending people accused of marijuana charges.
