Possession of Dangerous Drugs is prohibited by Arizona law. LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), also known as acid, is specifically prohibited under Arizona Statutes and carries its own unique penalties.
Drug possession is a serious crime in the United States. Drug possession can apply to any illegal drug, including marijuana, cocaine, opiates, or LSD. Getting caught with LSD or acid in Arizona is a class four felony. A felony conviction carries with it a substantial punishment. If you are convicted of possessing LSD or acid in violation of the Possession of Dangerous Drugs statute, Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3407, you may be sentenced to prison for between 1 year and 3.75 years. However, for most first-time offenders, Arizona’s Proposition 200 applies. If you are convicted of possessing LSD or acid in violation of the Possession of Dangerous Drugs statute, Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3407, you may be sentenced to a term of probation of up to 4 years.
If you have prior felony convictions, a violation of the Possession of Dangerous Drugs statute, Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3407, for possessing LSD or acid, could result in mandatory prison sentences of 2.25 years and 15 years, depending on your prior convictions and whether Proposition 200 protections apply to you.
