Ann Arbor Marijuana Possession

One of the most widely used drugs in Michigan and throughout America is marijuana, or “pot,” and although it is widely accepted by many as a medicinal remedy, the criminal penalties for possessing the drug in MI are still very severe. If you are caught in possession of any amount of marijuana, you could face up to one year imprisonment and a fine of as much as $2,000. The more you possess, however, the more likely it is that prosecutors will seek to charge you with a more serious offense, such as possession with intent. Always speak to an attorney right away so that you can be sure you are fully protected throughout the criminal justice process.

Possessing a Schedule One or Two Drug in Ann Arbor MI

The most serious criminal punishment can result from cases involving Schedule I or II substances, which are viewed as highly addictive and dangerous by state legislators. Drugs such as cocaine, heroin, LSD, and meth fit into this category. The specific penalties you will face will depend greatly on the drug you possess, amount possessed, and other circumstances of your situation, but the penalties outlined in Michigan law are as follows:

Possessing 25-50g of a Schedule I or II substance: up to 4 years in jail and $25,000 in fines.

Possessing 50-450g: up to 20 years imprisonment and $250,000 in fines.

Possessing 450g-1kg: up to 30 years imprisonment and $500,000 in fines.

Possessing over 1kg: potential life imprisonment and fines of up to $1,000,000.

Possession of Other Illegal Drugs in Michigan

Like marijuana, other drugs have specific laws which differ from the laws applying to entire Schedules of narcotics. Possessing ecstasy or methamphetamines can lead to up to 10 years imprisonment and as much as $15,000 in fines. Illegal possession of prescription drugs, steroids, designer drugs, date rape drugs, and other illegal substances can also have harsh consequences.
