The Law Offices of Barton Morris Fighting on Your Behalf

Drug trafficking includes the cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, and sale of drugs.

Drug trafficking is a felony offense that can carry stiff penalties.

Different Drug Classifications

Michigan law classifies controlled substances into five categories. The highest-level drugs (level I and II) carry a 20-year-offense and a $25,000 to $250,000 fine depending on the number of drugs allegedly in your possession. A Michigan drug trafficking lawyer will be able to ensure that the drugs you were arrested for are categorized correctly, as a common mistake made by the prosecuting attorney is to list a drug in a stronger category than it belongs in, resulting in a more severe sentencing.

Drugs are categorized by their potential for abuse:

  • Schedule I: LSD, ecstasy, heroin, GHB, hallucinogenic mushrooms
  • Schedule II: Cocaine, opium, morphine, OxyContin, Adderall, hydrocodone
  • Schedule III: Anabolic steroids, Vicodin, Tylenol, codeine
  • Schedule IV: Valium, Rohypnol, soma, Ambien, Xanax
  • Schedule V: Ephedrine and codeine, such as those found in cold medicine and cough syrups

If your charges include drug trafficking, these charges are much more severe than just possession. A drug trafficking lawyer who has plenty of experience with drug trafficking cases in their portfolio will be advantageous to you in court as a prosecutor will use every detail they can come up with to prove that you had the intent to sell the substances. The amount of drugs present and the packaging of the drugs will also come into play. This is why it is essential to have not just any criminal lawyer, but one who is a drug crimes lawyer experienced in handling drug trafficking cases in Michigan.
