If you have been accused of using or possessing drugs, you could face jail time, fines, license suspension, a criminal record, and other serious penalties. For using narcotics, the offense is usually a misdemeanor, though in most cases possession charges will accompany use or supersede charges for using illegal drugs. Possession of narcotics is always a very serious offense, and the specific penalties faced will depend greatly on the type of drug possessed. For highly addictive narcotics like cocaine and heroin, the penalties are the most serious, yet even drugs that are normally given with a prescription can lead to jail time, fines, and a criminal record. In addition to the type of drug possessed, the amount possessed can also effect the stakes in the case, as higher amounts will lead to greater maximum penalties, and could even result in possession with intent accusations.
For marijuana, the penalties for use and possession in Southfield are actually quite a bit less severe than those in most other US states, excluding those with decriminalization. As a countermeasure, however, Southfield has some of the harshest penalties in the nation for dealing or growing marijuana. The intent is to punish higher-level offenders, but it can mean that those who possess larger quantities of recreational marijuana can face millions of dollars in fines and decades behind bars. Always work with an attorney if you are accused of possessing marijuana or any other drug in Southfield, and fight back against potentially life-altering punishment.
In criminal law, intent is very key. If you intend to sell or deliver drugs, you will face the same maximums as those who are actually caught distributing or delivering drugs. The penalties for PWI and similarly serious felony offenses are extremely severe, and anyone facing a drug crime charge should contact an attorney as soon as possible. There are many legal options to be considered, including the possibility of a deferred sentence or parole, or even a plea deal.
