Benzodiazepines are regulated by both state and federal law, in part due to their use in sexual assault and rape cases. One popular date rape drug is flunitrazepam, known by its brand name Rohypnol. Rohypnol, or “roofies” is an illegal narcotic that has a sedative effect on users, causing confusion, relaxation, slurred speech, and other effects. The drug can be dangerous, especially when paired with alcohol, and also has potential for abuse or dependence.
Valium and other benzos are also known as a type of tranquilizer, and have similar sedative effects. Although some benzos have accepted medicinal purposes, possession with intent to distribute is still a serious crime, as unlawful distribution of the drugs can result in harsh criminal penalties. As a Schedule 4 illegal drug, Rohypnol, like Valium, is restricted and possession with intent charges will have you facing jail time, fines, and other punishment. Contact our law firm now to defend against wrongful conviction and fight for your freedom.
Another date rape drug restricted by state and federal law is Gamma-hydroxybutyrate, commonly known as GHB. GHB possession with intent could result in even harsher penalties than those set out for benzodiazepine crime, and you will need an experienced attorney to help you beat the charges you face. Contact our Michigan drug crime defense firm now for effective defense strategies that will give you an edge over the prosecution in your unique and complex case.
According to Michigan drug crime legislation, a state law charge for possession with intent to sell, deliver, distribute, or manufacture Rohypnol or any other Schedule 4 narcotic could result in a felony conviction, 4 year jail sentence, and fines of up to $2,000. Possession with intent to deliver, distribute, or manufacture GHB in Michigan will result in imprisonment for up to 7 years, along with a fine of up to $5,000. Additional details of your case could result in increased criminal punishment or federal prosecution, so work with an experienced attorney throughout your case to ensure you are aware of every legal possibility.
