Heroin Possession With Intent in Michigan
Heroin is strictly prohibited in the state of Michigan, and is classified as a Schedule 1 illegal narcotic.

It is vital to your freedom and future that you hire a talented criminal defense lawyer to defend you in your drug crime case.
Heroin is a drug that is synthesized from morphine, and can be injected, snorted, or inhaled. The drug can be detected in the bloodstream or by urine testing, and a failed drug test could result in a drug crime charge. Street names for heroin include “smack,” “dragon,” and “mud.” This highly addictive drug was at one time legal, and promoted as cough medication. Heroin was made illegal, however, after authorities realized that users became dependent on stronger, more frequent, and more deadly doses of the drug. The risk of heroin overdose is high, which is why possession with intent to sell or deliver offenders are treated to harsh punishment.
