What Are Designer Drugs? Kalamazoo Drug Possession Defense
Designer drugs are often designed to either make the effects of a particular narcotic stronger, longer-lasting, or faster-acting, or to mimic the effects using chemicals that are not as easily detected. They are often called analogs (or analogues) because they are analogous (or similar/the same) to other illegal drugs. PCP and LSD could be considered analogs, though they are now both listed as illegal under state law. More recent examples of designer drugs include bath salts and fentanyl. Synthetic marijuana is also often listed as a designer drug.
Possessing any amount of a designer drug can lead to serious penalties, and if the substance is intoxicating and at all addictive, it is likely restricted under state law. It is crucial that you work with an experienced attorney if you are accused of using, possessing, dealing, or making designer drugs, and our team is available now to start guiding you through your case.
Criminal Penalties for Analog Possession in Kalamazoo
The specifics penalties you will face if accused of designer drug possession will depend on the schedule the drug is listed in, or the schedule that the drug it mimics is listed in. This can lead to a wide range of penalties, often dependent on the amount of the drug possessed, with up to life behind bars and fines of one million dollars or more on the line for the most serious cases involving Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 analogs.
