Drug abuse continues to be viewed as a major problem in our society. As a result, penalties for drug-related crimes can be very high relative to the severity of the offense, and significant law enforcement resources are focused on enforcing criminal drug laws. For these reasons, it is essential to have an experienced, aggressive lawyer on your side when facing any sort of criminal drug investigation or charge.
Drug offenses can take a number of different forms. Drug possession can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony offense depending on what specific substance is involved in a given case, or the amount of drugs or evidence of an intent to deliver, sell or otherwise traffic in the controlled substance. Drug trafficking charges are treated very seriously by prosecutors, as law enforcement is concerned more with targeting the supply of controlled substances than the demand. For this reason, drug cultivation and manufacturing also carries severe penalties. Drug offenses can often involve collateral crimes, such as money laundering, conspiracy and racketeering charges. Drug charges can also involve the unauthorized possession or sales of prescription drugs.
Because of the complex interaction of federal and state regulation, the overlap between drug charges and other crimes, and the heightened scrutiny given by law enforcement to serious drug charges, representation by an experienced Michigan drug charge defense attorney is important. Drug cases often turn on issues of evidence and police procedure, making thorough investigation and aggressive representation by a defense attorney exceedingly important.
