Two prescription drugs that are central to prescription drug crime have strict penalties set out in the Michigan Penal Code. Vicodin is classified as a Schedule 3 drug in Michigan, and possession or sale of this legal prescription drug carries tough legal punishment. Simply using Vicodin could put you behind bars for a year and result in a $1,000 fine. Felony prescription drug charges include Vicodin possession, with punishment of up to two years in jail and a $2,000 fine, and Vicodin manufacture, delivery, possession with intent, or creation, which can result in a seven year jail term and possible $10,000 fine.

Charges for using OxyContin, a Schedule 2 drug, also can result in jail and fines. Using OxyContin could result in a year of jail time, with fines of up to $2,000. Possession of under 50 grams could put you behind bars for four years with fines of up to $25,000. Between 50 and 450 grams of OxyContin can result in a 20 year jail sentence, and fines of as much as $250,000. Between 450g and 1kg can bring a 30 year jail term and a possible fine of $500,000. Over 1kg of OxyContin can result in a life sentence as well as a fine of up to one million dollars. The penalties for manufacturing, delivering, or creation of OxyContin have the potential for even harsher sentencing.
Additionally, if you have previously been convicted on drug-related charges, or are accused of distribution in select public places including schools, you could be subject to additional penalties such as driver’s license suspension. Forging a prescription form can result in serious criminal penalties, as harsh as actual possession or distribution drug crime charges.
