Drug Trafficking Laws – Selling or Distributing Drugs in Michigan
Drug trafficking charges often result in addition to other allegations, such as drug possession or conspiracy to distribute, and as a result there are many different laws and sentencing guidelines pertaining to Muskegon drug trafficking. If you sell or deliver drugs within Michigan, you will be sentenced according to Michigan Public Health Code guidelines, which assign different maximum sentences to different drug schedules. The most serious penalties are handed out in cases involving Schedule 1 or 2 illegal narcotics, such as cocaine and heroin. Schedule 3, 4, and 5 substances are still taken extremely seriously, however, and a conviction could lead to jail time, fines, and a felony record.
In addition, if you are accused of conspiring to distribute, possessing large amounts of drugs, or if money laundering or weapons charges are also involved, the maximum sentences you face can be stacked on top of one another, and leave you facing life in prison and millions of dollars in fines.
