Southfield Possession With Intent to Sell/Deliver Designer Drugs Attorney
As drug law has changed to keep up with advances in narcotics and narcotic substitutes, more and more substances have been added to the list of controlled drugs in Southfield. Designer drugs, also called analogs or analogues, are narcotics designed to mimic the effects of other narcotics, like cocaine, meth, or LSD, and sometimes mimic the chemical makeup of these drugs. Originally, designer drugs came about as both an attempt to make narcotics stronger and more addictive, while also getting around certain drug legislation by making substances that were not named as illegal in Michigan law. However, as Southfield law has caught up to modern drug crime, these substances are now restricted under a catch-all phrase which makes any narcotic that mimics the chemical structure and/or effects of another drug illegal.

Designer Drug Possession With Intent in Southfield
Some common designer drugs and ingredients include dimetamine, ethylketamine, butylone, BZP, MDMA, Pentylone, Buphedrone, Madol, and THG. The term “designer drugs” is often simply applied to substances that are new or not yet listed, like bath salts or “china white.” Anyone who is caught possessing these substances can face serious penalties, however the most serious penalties are reserved for those who intend to sell or deliver the drug, as evidenced by possession of a large amount of the drug, packaging that suggests a drug may be for sale, attempts to move the drug or cross state lines, or even communications regarding sale or delivery of a drug. As with many other laws, intent is everything. It doesn’t matter if a person actually delivers a drug, technically, all that matters is that they intended to at some point.
