If you maintain a building or vehicle in Michigan that is connected to criminal drug activity, you could face serious fines and criminal punishment.

According to Section 333.7405 of the Michigan Public Health Code, a person shall not knowingly keep or maintain a dwelling, vehicle, boat, or other place that is frequented by drug users, or that is used for keeping or selling illegal substances. In order to convict you of maintaining a drug house, prosecuting attorneys must first prove that you had knowledge of the drug related activity occurring in a building or vehicle. Next, the prosecution must be able to prove you keep or maintain that structure or vehicle. In order to be convicted of drug house charges, you do not have to be the legal owner of the building or vehicle in question, it just has to be evident that you keep or maintain that building and are aware of drug use, storage, or sale related to that place.
