Put This Drug Possession Charge Behind You

Contextual Image

For the last several decades, the criminal justice system across the United States and in Michigan has drawn a hard line for individuals involved with illegal substances. The "War on Drugs" has turned regular, hardworking people from all walks of life into criminals — even for recreational drug use.

While illegal activity is something to take seriously, it is also critical that such activity is thoroughly investigated, that we focus on the root cause of drug crimes, and that we approach the accused with a focus on rehabilitation and the due process of law.

Can I Be Charged With Drug Possession For Prescription Medication?

Many people only think of marijuana, cocaine, heroin or other illicit drugs when they think of drug crimes. Prescription medication, however, can result in the same serious criminal charges. If you do not have a valid prescription, but were found in possession of prescription medication, you could end up with a criminal charge. The same is true for DUI/OWI offenses as they relate to operating a vehicle while under the influence of prescription medication.

Do not under estimate the severity of an arrest. It is critical that you contact an experienced defense lawyer as soon as possible. The earlier we can get involved and protect your rights, the more chances you will have for a favorable outcome. Contact us today via email, or call 616-259-0862 to set up an appointment.
