Throughout the country, there are strong movements fighting for transferring drug-related issues from the criminal justice system to the mental health system. This is especially true in regards to simple possession, but not manufacturing, trafficking, sale, or other associated crimes. Unfortunately, even first time drug offenders in Troy, MI can face extremely serious criminal penalties, some of which can have lifelong ramifications on your freedom and quality of life.

Types of Drug Crimes and Associated Penalties in Troy

Penalties for drug crimes in Troy and Oakland County can be very serious, and the State of Michigan takes a hard stance against drug possession, manufacturing, trafficking, and sale. Even if caught with possession, police and prosecutors often attempt to amplify the charges by adding accusations of intent to sell or deliver. This is especially true if caught with a large quantity. If arrested or charged with a drug crime, it is essential to know what you could be facing. According to Michigan Penal Code Section 333.7401, the penalties you could be facing could include:

  • Possession of more than 1,000 grams: felony punishable by life imprisonment and/or a fine of not more than $1,000,000
  • Possession of 450 to 1,000 grams: felony punishable by not more than 30 years imprisonment and/or a fine of not more than $500,000
  • Possession of 50 to 450 grams: felony punishable by not more than 20 years and/or a fine of not more than $250,000
  • Possession of less than 50 grams: felony punishable by not more than 20 years and/or a fine of not more than $25,000

Keep in mind that these penalties do not include marijuana related laws. Possession of any amount of marijuana is a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year imprisonment and/or a maximum fine of $2,000. Furthermore, the type of drug determines the penalty. At Grabel & Associates, we have protected defendants from Troy and Oakland County for a variety of drug crimes, including:
