Drug Dealing and Sale Laws in Detroit Michigan
The specific laws that will be related to your case depend greatly on the type of drug that has allegedly been sold or delivered. In the state of Michigan and federally, drugs are separated into distinct Schedules, and the specific subsections of the law and penalties that will be used during conviction and sentencing come from these Schedules.
The drug Schedules in Detroit range from Schedule I (which is the most serious) down to Schedule V (which carries less serious penalties). Drugs included in Schedule I include Heroin, Ecstasy, and LSD. Schedule II includes Cocaine, Meth, and drugs like Oxycodone and Methadone. Schedule II includes narcotics like Ketamine, while Schedule IV includes Rohypnol, Valium, and Xanax. In Schedule V are certain over the counter cold medicines with ephedrine or Codeine.
Some substances, such as marijuana and certain hallucinogens, while Scheduled with other drugs, have separate subsections for cases involving distribution, possession, cultivation, or manufacture.

Criminal Penalties for Drug Sale or Dealing in Detroit
Another factor in the specific penalties you can face is the amount of the drug involved in the sale or drug deal, or that is simply in the offender’s possession.
For Schedule I and II substances, any amount over 1 kg can lead to life behind bars. Distributing between 450 g and 1 kg can lead to 30 years in prison and a half-million dollar fine. Between 50 and 450 grams can lead to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Any amount under 50 grams can lead to 4 years in prison and a $25,000. Like most drug crime cases, additional penalties like a felony record, suspended driver’s license, and more, can result.
