Do not risk a drug conviction!
The state of Michigan has laws that prohibit individuals from possessing,
delivering, and manufacturing certain drugs unless they have some legitimate
authority to do so. Many of the drugs that are controlled by state law
(or "controlled substances") fall under the category of narcotics.
Because of the effects that narcotics can have on the human body and within
the public, drug crimes that involve these types of controlled substances
tend to result in the most severe penalties.
Types of narcotic drug crimes can include:
- Possession with intent to deliver / manufacture
In Michigan, controlled substances are categorized into five different
"schedules." Schedule 1 and 2 narcotics are the most serious
types of narcotics and can lead to extreme penalties. Some individuals
may be at risk of spending just a
few years behind bars while others may be facing
decades of possible prison time. Offenders are also usually subject to
expensive fines that can go as high as hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Because the charges for a narcotic crime will depend on the type of drug,
the amount involved, and the nature of the offense (such as simple possession
vs. drug trafficking), there are a wide variety of potential penalties.
If the defendant has previous drug convictions, the severity of their
penalties may also increase.
