Being charged with possession, delivery, or possession with intent to deliver marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, or prescription drugs are complicated and serious charges. The consequences of conviction are more severe and far reaching than ever. The penalties for being convicted of a drug offense in Michigan will affect not just you, but your family as well. Penalties include substantial fines, costs, and fees to the court, jail and prison time, lengthy probation, work crew, community service, mandatory treatment, classes, and or counseling, loss of your driver’s license; and often results in the loss of your job, loss of any future jobs; and a criminal conviction reflecting drugs on your criminal record.


A conviction for possessing or dealing drugs will appear on any background check or security clearance. A conviction for use, possession, or drug dealing will affect your seeking custody of or parenting time with your children. Your property, including your home, can be seized.
