Analogue (or Analog) drugs are often called designer drugs, and mimic the chemical structure of illegal narcotics. Under past state drug laws, only actual listed drugs were considered illegal, making these “designer” drugs ideal. New legislation cracks down hard on analogue drug use and possession, however, and it is crucial that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible if you are facing a drug crime charge.
Analogue drugs are chemically similar to illegal narcotics, and often have the same effects on users. Due to the potential for addiction, abuse, or dependence, designer drugs are taken seriously by law enforcement. Many designer drugs can pass through drug a screening test, which creates a problem for Michigan police, parole officers, and drug enforcement teams. This has led to harsh laws for analogue possession, as prosecutors look to crack down on illegal drug users before the evidence is gone.

Analogue drugs or designer drugs copy the chemical structure of illegal drugs such as cocaine, heroin, or codeine. Widely used analogues include Vicodin, which mimics the effects of codeine, and Oxycontin, which can be compared to heroin. Other designer drugs, such as a-methylfentanyl, methedrone, and benzylbutylbarbiturate are also considered similar to illegal narcotics and are therefore illegal in Michigan.
Analogue drugs which are very similar to illegal Schedule 1 or Schedule 2 illicit substances can result in the same punishments as those highly addictive narcotics. The DEA can also issue immediate rulings on designer drugs, allowing states to outlaw possession and use as soon as the substance is ruled illegal.
