Possession of a Schedule I or II Drug in Michigan
Possession of Schedule I and II substances can lead to the most serious criminal penalties, which can include substantial fines, years in prison, and a felony criminal record. Drugs classified as Schedule I and II include heroin, cocaine, LSD, and methamphetamines. While marijuana is also classified as Schedule I, different penalties apply to the drug.
If convicted of possessing a Schedule I or II controlled substance, you will face the following penalties:
- Possession of between 25 and 50 grams can lead to up to 4 years imprisonment and as much as $25,000 in fines.
- Possession of between 50 and 450 grams can lead to as much as 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
- Possession of 450 grams to 1 kilogram can result in up to 30 years in prison and half a million in fines.
- Possession of over 1 kilogram can result in life imprisonment and a million dollars in fines.
Possession of Marijuana in Lansing
The penalties for possession of marijuana are different than those for other Schedule I and II drugs. If you are caught possessing any amount of marijuana, you could be faced with up to a year in jail and $2,000 in fines. If you possess an amount that suggests you may intend to distribute marijuana, however, you will face extremely enhanced punishment.
Possession of Ecstasy or Methamphetamines in Michigan
Like marijuana, possessing ecstasy and methamphetamines is not punished in the same way as other Schedule I and II drugs. Possession of any amount of meth or ecstasy will lead to up to 10 years in prison and $15,000 in fines. Manufacturing or distributing (or intending to do either) will lead to substantially larger fines, and potentially greater prison sentences.

Our lawyers will look over every detail of your case and stand with you throughout investigation, ensuring that any police mistakes are brought to light.
