Although news reports do not indicate the amount of drugs involved, Michigan drug possession lawyers know that these types of offenses are punished severely in the state of Michigan. Methamphetamine is a Schedule II drug, defined as those substances or chemicals with a high potential for addiction or abuse. This means the penalties for those convicted will be extremely serious. In fact, an individual convicted of possessing more than 1,000 grams faces fines of up to $1,000,000 and possible life imprisonment.
Anyone who has been accused of possession, maintaining a drug house, or the manufacture or cultivation of marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, or other illicit substance or narcotic must obtain effective legal counsel immediately.
