Definition of Drug “Sales” under Arizona Law

Under Arizona law the Definition of “Sale” or “Sell” can be found in “A.R.S. 13-3401 Definitions 32” at the official Arizona State Legislature web site. It reads in part as follows:

“… ‘Sale’ or ‘sell’ means an exchange for anything of value or advantage, present or prospective.”

This means that the exchange for narcotic drugs need not be made with money in order to be classified as a “sale” in Arizona. You can be arrested, and convicted of illegal narcotics drug crimes if your charges involve the exchange of drugs for anything of value. This can include such both tangible and nontangible items for example: property, services or even other drugs. Under Arizona Law, you can be convicted of drug sales crimes even if the sale has been made with a commitment for a future transaction.
