Farmington Hills Drug Sales Attorney
Drug Sales Defense Lawyer in Farmington Hills Serving Oakland County & Beyond
In Michigan, the penalties for drug offenses vary depending upon the Schedule of the drug (with Schedule I drugs considered the most serious), the quantity of the drug, and what you intended to do with the drug. For example, possession of 5 ounces or more of marijuana or possession of prescription drugs without a prescription are generally classified as misdemeanor offenses. On the other hand, if you possess the same drugs with the intent to manufacture, deliver, or sell them to another person, you are now facing felony charges, which come with increased fines and longer sentences.
If you were arrested for selling drugs or are the subject of a drug crime investigation, you have no time to lose—call me, Daniel D. Hajji, Attorney at Law, for help.

In addition to the above penalties, Michigan law requires the suspension of the defendant’s driver's license for drug convictions. This means that if you have no prior drug violations, your license may be suspended for six months; if you have any drug convictions in the past seven years, your license may be suspended for up to one year.
