All drug charges are serious and carry punishment that include jail or prison time, fines, costs, loss of drivers license and probation with oversight fees, drops and community service. Possession of a drug and use of a drug are punished less harshly than the charge of intent to distribute.
“However, a prosecutor to maintain a distribution charge can by law claim a person is distributing based solely on the amount of the drug, even without hard evidence of sales and distribution. Therefore, even if you or someone you know is being investigated for a methamphetamine crime, you need to consult and hire a lawyer immediately to minimize the chances that the more serious charges are brought against you.”

Using methamphetamine or crystal meth is a misdemeanor charge in Michigan carrying a possible sentence of up to one year in jail and a potential fine of $2,000. Methamphetamine possession is a felony charge with a possible penalty of 10 years in jail and a $15,000 fine. If police and prosecutors manage to turn one of these charges into a possession with intent to distribute case, however, you will be subject to extremely severe criminal penalties that could put you behind bars for 20 years, and make you forfeit up to $25,000.
