County Attorney’s Office to Dismiss Pending Marijuana Charges Included in Proposition 207

Big Idea

  • Arizona voters approved Prop 207
  • This decriminalizes limited personal possession and use of marijuana
  • The Yavapai County Attorney’s Office will implement the voters’ will immediately
  • Pending charges covered by Prop 207 will be dropped
  •

Marijuana has been decriminalized, up to a point, by Prop 207

On November 3, 2020, voters in Arizona approved Proposition 207, an initiative that decriminalized personal possession and use of marijuana in an amount less than one ounce and limits personal cultivation of marijuana by a person age twenty-one (21) and older. The effective date of Proposition 207 will be in approximately 30 days. The County Attorney’s Office will begin implementing the will of the voters immediately.

Because of the new expungement provisions in Proposition 207, instead of continuing to expend resources on these cases, the Office will dismiss all pending charges of possession of marijuana and any associated paraphernalia charges for conduct that is covered by Proposition 207. This will include all cases pending in Early Disposition Court, those pending trial, and those set for sentencing or probation violation hearings.
