If you have been charged with possession of marijuana or use of marijuana, you’re going to require a skilled Arizona Criminal Lawyer.
The key to defending any “possession” charge is showing that the person did not “knowingly” possess any drugs or paraphernalia (i.e., “Lack of Knowledge”). Many times we can demonstrate that what was found in a person’s vehicle or inside their house or apartment was left behind by somebody else (such as a roommate, or somebody who came over to the house at a much earlier time). As far as defending the use” of such items, we will need to challenge any claims by the Officer of signs and symptoms of drug impairment or whether he could “smell” any drugs in the air. It will be critical to determine not only what you actually said to the Officers, but also what the Officers are claiming you said.
