Question

In reference to Marijuana, how much do the courts consider to be a "usable amount"?

Answer

In Arizona, there is not necessarily a set amount that is considered a 'usable' quantity of marijuana. The state has the burden to produce evidence that the marijuana is in a form and amount that can be used under known practices. What this means is that the prosecutor usually will have an expert, often a law enforcement officer, testify as to how people commonly use marijuana and how much of it is needed.

In one case, 0.3 grams of marijuana (a very small amount) was considered to be a usable amount. State v. Murphy (1977) 117 Ariz. 57, 570 P.2d 1070.
