Ecstasy, “E”, or “Molly”, is considered a highly popular recreational drug that is trending with the younger generation. It is mainly a party drug that enhances feeling of pleasure that has gained popularity over the past few years. Due to the purchase trend of the drug and the fact that Michigan shares a border with Canada (A known entry-way for large quantities of Ecstasy), local law enforcement go out of their way to target this drug specifically. Having an ecstasy attorney that knows the trends, police targeting practices, and the inner workings of the ecstasy trade can make a huge difference. The difference between a possession charge and a trafficking/distribution charge is extreme for Ecstasy/MDMA compared to other narcotics under Michigan Law.
An attorney experienced with ecstasy can tell the difference whether a person purchased the drug for personal use or if they purchased the drug with the intent to sell to others. Considering that deals with ecstasy are usually bargain-based, meaning large quantities are bought for large discounts, it\’s imperative that you don’t get charged with sale of ecstasy carrying a felony charge along with a lengthy prison sentence. In many instances, the purchaser becomes the “hook up” for their close friends because many of their friends don’t want to take the risk of purchasing the drug. Unfortunately, the purchaser usually does so without knowing the harsh penalties and fines they could potentially be facing in court.
