Possessing a drug is fairly self-explanatory: anytime a person has any amount of an illegal drug on their person or property, they are guilty of possession. Likewise, drug dealing, sale, and delivery aren’t very complex. If a person has an illicit substance and delivers, sells, or otherwise gives it to another person, he or she can be charged with some form of drug dealing. Intent is where the law sometimes can get more complicated. Intent to sell or deliver a drug can be determined by the amount of a drug present (exceptionally large amounts suggest intent to deal), by the finding of communications related to drug sale or delivery, from verbal admission, or a variety of other ways. Sometimes, a case involving personal use escalates to possession of marijuana with intent because drug paraphernalia or large amounts of plants or bud form marijuana are present. In other cases, false allegations result, either from a botched investigation or a malicious tip. No matter what the circumstances surrounding your unique case, our talented Southfield marijuana possession lawyers are available now to help you as you fight for justice. Contact our experienced firm now to get started.
The penalties for marijuana possession with intent to sell or deliver are very serious, no matter what amount of the drug is allegedly involved. For amounts under 5 kg or less than 20 total plants, a sentence could include up to 4 years behind bars and a $20,000 fine. For larger amounts still less than 45 kg, or up to 200 plants, a fine of $500,000 and a 7-year prison sentence could result. Any larger amount could lead to 15 years behind bars and a fine of up to ten million dollars.
