What Is “Transportation For Sale”?
Arizona views “transportation for sale” as a serious offense
and the charge is not always dependent on how much marijuana you are transporting
or trafficking. Even if you’ve never been in trouble before, a conviction
for transportation of marijuana for sale can result in stiff mandatory
Arizona law defines drug thresholds amounts – usually about $1000
worth of the drug. The threshold amount for marijuana is two pounds, and
if you are found transporting that much or more, it can be presumed that
you are transporting for sale purposes. If you are convicted of transporting,
or even possessing or cultivating more than the threshold amount for sale
or distribution, prison is mandatory.
Possible penalties for transportation of marijuana for sale include:
- Prison sentences for a first offense can range from 3 years to more than 12 years
- With a prior felony conviction, the sentence can range from over 4 years
to more than 23 years in prison.
- With two prior felony convictions, the sentence can range from over 10
years to 35 years in prison.
Transportation of marijuana for sale charges are taken seriously and carry
severe penalties. Even if an individual is not transporting marijuana
over the threshold amount (two pounds), they
can still be charged with “for sale” purposes if police have reason to believe that was the individual’s intent,
particularly if police find scales or bags for distribution, or drug ledgers
showing sales and the money collected or owed from them.

Commercial Trucking Cases
Usually, it isn’t a coincidence when a police officer pulls over
a commercial truck. It is possible that police could be involved in an
ongoing larger investigation. Even if you have been arrested and quickly
released, you should seek the legal counsel of a criminal defense attorney.
Many times people will not realize that their arrest was part of a much
bigger operation, which if not addressed immediately, could result in
much more serious legal problems and consequences in the future. Being
charged with transportation of marijuana for sale as a truck driver is
a serious charge and you should not take it lightly.
