Simple Possession:
In Arizona, convictions for possession of marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia is a criminal offense and may be charged either as a misdemeanor or felony, at the discretion of the State.
Incarceration cannot be imposed for a first or second offense, but probation may be imposed and drug treatment or education may be required, especially if it is a second offense. While unlikely, in some cases, persons on probation must also submit to urine drug tests as a condition of their probation.
Beginning with the third offense, incarceration is at the discretion of the judge.

Sales/Cultivation: Convictions for marijuana offenses related to the sale, possession for sale and cultivation are punishable by imprisonment, but probation may be granted at the discretion of the judge for the first offense. After than, prison time is mandatory unless a plea agreement is reached that specifically calls for probation.

Early Release: With the exception of school zone cases, a person sentenced to prison is eligible for early release after serving approximately 85% of the total prison sentence.
