Dcs got involved after I tested positive for thc with my first pregnancy but Arizona has since legalized marijuana. Additionally, I suffer from chronic pain due to nerve damage and can’t take my other medications while pregnant.

Yes, absolutely they will take away your children if you smoke marijuana while pregnant. It's not an issue of whether it's legal--the issue is that it's dangerous for the child.
Use of marijuana while pregnant can cause a variety of problems, including restrict your... Read more »

You're entitled to basic disclosure and anything that may be exculpatory in nature. Including statements made by co-defendants. Your attorney needs to ask for everything.

Based on your question, I cannot tell whether you have a pending charge or a conviction for DUI from 2012.

I was hoping someone could explain the apparent contradiction between legally growing six plants and legally having no more than 1 oz in possession. I have never grown pot before so I was reading up on it, and it looks like each plant could produce over a pound of marijuana. It seems possible that... Read more »

You are right. That was not a very thoughtful piece of the legislation. There is an argument that you would have several plants, in different stages of growth, and harvesting and using the cannabis as you need it.

Possession of marijuana in Arizona
California resident (Legal in CA)
No doctor letter
Officer told me its a misdemeanor

There really is no advantage to concealing this. By statute, the family court cannot draw any negative inference from a valid medical marijuana card. If the opposing party alleges substance abuse, you may be ordered to test randomly for an extended period of time. The card may help preempt that.... Read more »
