Different Types of Drug Crimes

The state of Michigan classifies narcotics into categories called “schedules,” ranging from Schedule I (identified as high potential for abuse and no medical value) to Schedule V (low-risk drugs, often can be purchased over the counter). There are many circumstances that may result in drug crime charges, including possession, trafficking, use, prescription fraud, manufacturing, and distribution.

Many different kinds of narcotics may result in a drug crime arrest, including:

  • Heroin
  • Ecstasy
  • Cocaine
  • Rohypnol
  • Marijuana
  • Prescription drugs
  • Valium and other painkillers
  • LSD and other hallucinogens
  • PCP, also known as “angel dust”
  • Opiates, such as Oxycontin and Vicodin
  • Methamphetamine and other amphetamines

The penalties for drug crimes in Michigan are some of the most severe, and the consequences of a conviction can be life-altering. An experienced criminal defense attorney will be familiar with all aspects of drug crimes and can help you understand both the charges brought against you as well as what your best course of action is.
