If you have been charged with drug possession or alcohol possession in Maricopa or elsewhere in Arizona, and you are under the age of 21 then you can face serious penalties for conviction. According to ARS §4-244(9) it is illegal for an individual under the age of 21 to have spirituous liquor in their possession. This is not a felony crime; therefore a juvenile who is charged with this crime will be tried in juvenile court.

Possession of less than two pounds of marijuana is a Class 6 felony for conviction and carries penalties of six to 18 months in prison and fines up to $150,000.
