Heroin Crime in Michigan

Due to the effects of heroin use and high potential for addiction, it is classified as a Schedule I illegal drug in Michigan. Heroin is an opiate that is derived from morphine, and while it was initially legal as a cough medication, the dangerous drug is now illegal throughout the United States and most of the world. Heroin goes by many names, and is commonly referred to as “smack” on the street. The drug is usually injected, though it can be snorted or inhaled as well.

Heroin can lead to rapid addiction, and the risk of overdose is very high. The substance remains in the body for a significant period after use and can be detected through a urine analysis or blood test, which could lead to criminal charges. Possessing, distributing, or manufacturing heroin is even more serious, and offenders could face significant jail time and fines if convicted.

Schedule I Drug Crime in Michigan

Using heroin or failing a drug test is a misdemeanor crime, which could result in up to a year in prison and a fine of as much as $2,000. Possessing the drug or a mixture containing the drug can result in more serious felony charges, however. An amount up to 50g can lead to 4 years in prison and a fine of $25,000. Between 50g and 450g could lead to 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. Up to 1kg of heroin could land you behind bars for 30 years, and lead to a fine of $500,000. Any amount over 1kg can result in life in prison along with a fine of $1,000,000.

Selling or manufacturing heroin can lead to even greater punishment, with as many as 20 years on the line for even a first offense under 50g. In addition, any sale to a minor or near school property can lead to double the penalties. Contact Grabel & Associates now to fight back against jail time, fines, and a criminal record.
