Pinal to drop marijuana possession charges

By Suzanne Adams-Ockrassa, Katie Sawyer | Maricopa Monitor

FLORENCE — Pinal County is following in the footsteps of other counties in the state by dismissing some charges for marijuana possession under the new law that was passed when voters approved Proposition 207 on Nov. 3.

“We are dropping cases as soon as we can find them,” said Trevor Smith, the public information officer for the Pinal County Attorney’s Office.

All of the office’s attorneys are searching through their caseloads to find individuals facing charges of possession of less than 2.5 ounces of marijuana, with no more than 5 grams being a marijuana concentrate, which was obviously for personal use, he said. They are also looking through the list of bench warrants issued for individuals who may have similar possession charges that may be dismissed.
