Under Michigan law, drug offenses fall into three categories:
Within each of these groups, the statute provides different levels of severity depending on the type of controlled substance. Schedule 1 offenses are the most serious and Schedule 5 offenses are the least.
Penalties for these different offenses can vary greatly, as the sentence for a conviction will depend upon the category of the offense and the type of controlled substance. Most drug crimes carry potential for incarceration, and there is even the possibility of life in prison for the most serious offenses. Plus, you face fines, probation, and a criminal record.
In addition, there are non-criminal consequences if you are convicted on a drug crime charge. You may have difficulty finding employment or lose your professional license.
