What penalties can you face for a Michigan drug crime?

Whether it's a drug possession or a drug trafficking case, a court will often impose the severest sentence available. If you take immediate action to contact us, we can fight to have your charges dismissed or reduced, prepared to win your case in trial if need be. No case is too complex for us.

In Michigan, certain dangerous drugs can lead to higher penalties:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine

Possession of any of the above substances is a felony drug crime, with prison terms ranging from one year to life. You can also be fined up to $25,000.

If you are charged with a marijuana crime, you could still face a year in jail and a $2,000 fine for misdemeanor possession. But if large quantities of cannabis are involved, you could be charged with possession with intent to deliver, a felony that can send you to prison for 4 years and cost you $20,000. In some cases, you could even face these penalties for using medical marijuana.
