Drug Charges We Handle
Under the U.S. Controlled Substances Act, hundreds of drugs are heavily regulated as controlled substances, and individual states – such as Michigan – also have their own strict laws governing drug manufacturing, importation, possession, and usage. From illegally manufacturing marijuana products to simple drug possession, there are many ways that an individual can become charged with drug crimes and face serious penalties, both at the state and the federal level. Depending on the “schedule” of the drug in question and the amounts involved, you could be looking at lengthy jail time, exorbitant fees, and other serious consequences.
The following drugs are pursued with special zeal by Michigan prosecutors during criminal cases:
- Illegally-obtained prescription opioids, such as OxyContin and Percoset
- Fentanyl and synthetic opioids
- Illegally-obtained marijuana and cannabis products
- Designer drugs, such as MDMA
- Steroids and performance enhancers
At Grewal Law PLLC, our firm handles all types of drug charges. Whether you have been arrested for possession of a “designer” drug or your loved one has been charged with illegally distributing prescription or performance-enhancing drugs, we can help.
We have years of experience handling the following drug matters:
- Drug possession
- Drug distribution and sale
- Maintaining a drug house or drug vehicle
- Prescription drug crimes
- Deferred sentences
Regardless of the type of charge you are facing, all drug offenses are very serious. It is crucial that you act quickly to protect your rights and better your chances of an optimal outcome.
Penalties for Drug Crimes in Michigan
Michigan has one of the toughest stances on drug crimes. The exact penalties you face depend on the type of drug crime you are accused of committing, but the consequences for all drug crimes in Michigan are generally very harsh.
For example, possession of a “designer” drug (such as MDMA or bath salts) can result in the following penalties:
- Up to 2 years in prison for a misdemeanor or up to 15 years in prison for a felony
- Fines ranging from $2,000 (misdemeanor) to $250,000 (felony)
Additionally, the penalties for possession of performance-enhancing drugs (steroids) range from:
- Up to 90 days in jail (misdemeanor) or up to 7 years in prison (felony)
- Fines of $100 (misdemeanor) or up to $1,000 (felony)
In most cases, a conviction will result in some combination of fines and jail/prison time. The exact penalties you will face will depend on a number of factors, including the type and amount of drugs allegedly in possession, as well as whether or not law enforcement believes you had the intent to deliver or sell the drugs in question.
