Can anyone recommend a fantastic lawyer who specializes in drug charges in PHX, AZ? My whole world just got turned upside down. What am I looking at for possesion of multiple bongs, pipes, less than 1 gram of herb and a couple ounces of mushrooms taken from my home? I haven't been charged yet. I don't want to go to jail. No scales but the shrooms were in 4 bags. Who's been through this? I'm so sad. This may mean no coachella for me and thats only the beginning.
I haven't read the whole thread, but there are numerous variables here. Is this your first offense? If so, you'll just get probation, no jail time. I'm from PHX, and have been arrested for drugs both in PHX and Flag, and have never served a day (for drugs, anyway). Definitely consult an attorney, though, they know the ins and outs, and will likely set up a sweet plea deal for you. Most likely you will wind up on TASC for 6-9 months, pay about $1,000 in fines and fees, and will be on probation for a year or so. Maybe two. A buddy of mine had his place raided where he had a half pound of bud and two oz's of shrooms (in Tempe), and he never saw the inside of a jail cell. You're not going to jail, but you are going to have to pay fines and be a good boy for the next couple years.
If its anything like california this tasc sounds like prop 36 or pc1000. Which usually consists of probabtion, restitution, and drugs counseling. Beware though if you get caught with more drugs while on probation you will probably do time.
Also, I heard there are 3 marijuana legalization initiatives trying to get on the November 2010 California ballot. I doubt any will ualify, let alone pass unless they have a ton of money behind them. Maybe George Soros could kick them all down some buckaroos.
It's all very state specific because it depends on the provisions of the state's freedom of information (or other similar public records) act. They are public records, but access to them is usually limited in a variety of ways. If you're the subject of the police report or have a direct interest in it, you should be able to get a copy. Journalists should be able to get copies of most things, subject to redaction or other limitations for on-going investigations. PIs probably don't have direct access to the databases themselves, but are usually able to get a hold of things.

Thank you, sir. seems I'm in the same position I was a week ago, nowhere. while I'm happy to have gotten the information I have, I'm still not worth any significant effort on the part of law enforcement.
