Possession of Meth in Southfield
Methamphetamines, including crystal meth, are considered highly dangerous and high-risk non-medicinal substances, and as such are highly regulated statewide.

Never speak to the police if you are questioned or arrested for possessing illegal drugs, unless you have consulted with an experienced defense lawyer first. It is never a good idea to make a statement or answer police questions without an attorney, as oftentimes the investigators know exactly what they need to ask in order to get you to say what they need to hear. What you may think is going to clear up the situation could end up giving police probable cause to take the charges against you to the next level, and you don’t want to unintentionally give them reason to continue to pursue a conviction in your case.

Methamphetamine Laws in Southfield
Like cocaine and other highly restricted substances, meth and methamphetamine derivatives are listed on Schedule II, and can lead to some of the most serious criminal penalties for drug possession. Unlike cocaine and most other Schedule 2 drugs, however, the amount of methamphetamine possessed doesn’t officially matter for sentencing (though it could certainly play a role in a trial). Under meth-specific laws in Southfield, the punishment for possessing methamphetamine in any amount is the same. While repeat offenses or mitigating factors could lead to more serious penalties, a lengthy jail sentence, significant fine, and felony record will always be on the line, no matter what. Work with a lawyer to protect against wrongful conviction or excessive sentencing in your Southfield meth possession case.
Penalties for Possession of Meth and Crystal Meth in Southfield
If convicted of a first offense meth possession charge, you could face:
- Up to 10 years in prison.
- A $15,000 fine.
- A felony record.
- Additional drug crime penalties including driver’s license suspension.
For repeat offenders, up to 20 years behind bars and a $25,000 fine could result. If the offense was committed near a school, park, church, or business, the penalties could be enhanced in both first time and repeat offender cases.
