Michigan Drug Charge Defense 

Under Michigan Law, you cannot be prosecuted for drug charges if:

  • The charge results from your seeking medical treatment for an overdose
  • You came to possess a controlled substance while helping someone else get medical treatment for an overdose
  • You possess a controlled substance due to a valid prescription order from a medical practitioner

Understanding Controlled Substances 

While medical marijuana is legal in Michigan, the program is regulated by the state, and facilities providing medical marijuana must comply with licensing procedures, which include approval by their municipality. Marijuana obtained outside this system is considered a controlled substance, and possessors are subject to felony charges.

Other controlled substances include various pharmaceuticals, opium derivatives, hallucinogens, and their derivatives or synthetics.
