Possession or Distribution of cocaine/heroin
In the state of Michigan, any possession or distribution of cocaine, heroin, or many other Schedule 2 drugs can result in as serious consequences as life in prison. Consequences for cocaine-related crimes vary based on whether you are charged with cocaine use or cocaine possession.
Cocaine use is only considered a misdemeanor in Michigan, so the penalties are minimal compared to cocaine possession charges. Cocaine possession, however, is a felony, so the possible consequences are more severe and vary in degree based on the amount of the drug in your possession.
