Ecstasy, “E”, or “Molly”, is considered a highly popular recreational drug that is trending with the younger generation. It is mainly a party drug that enhances feeling of pleasure that has gained popularity over the past few years. Due to the purchase trend of the drug and the fact that Michigan shares a border with Canada (A known entry-way for large quantities of Ecstasy), local law enforcement go out of their way to target this drug specifically. Having an ecstasy attorney that knows the trends, police targeting practices, and the inner workings of the ecstasy trade can make a huge difference. The difference between a possession charge and a trafficking/distribution charge is extreme for Ecstasy/MDMA compared to other narcotics under Michigan Law.
An attorney experienced with drug charges can tell the difference whether a person purchased Exstacy (MDMA) for personal use or if they purchased the drug with the intent to sell to others. Considering that deals with ecstasy are usually bargain-based, meaning large quantities are bought for large discounts, it’s imperative that you don’t get charged with sale of ecstasy carrying a felony charge along with a lengthy prison sentence. In many instances, the purchaser becomes the “hook up” for their close friends because many of their friends don’t want to take the risk of purchasing the drug. Unfortunately, the purchaser usually does so without knowing the harsh penalties and fines they could potentially be facing in court.
We will complete a thorough investigation of your case and closely look over every piece of evidence because we know the importance of avoiding the unnecessary punishments that come along with a ecstasy sales charge.
What Are The Penalties for Ecstasy in Michigan?
Using Ecstacy or “Molly” is a misdemeanor charge in Michigan. If you are facing this charge, you could be facing up to one year in jail and fines up to $2000. Possession or possession w/ intent to deliver is considered a much more serious charge and therefor carries longer jail times and increased fines. Possession charges can result with up to 10 years in prison and fines up to $10,000. If you are facing a possession with intent to deliver charges, you are potentially facing 20 years in prison along with fines up to $25,000. These possession charges apply if you are carrying in excess of 50 grams but less than 450 grams of the drug. A possession w/ intent to deliver in which you are found with an excess of 1000 grams can result in a charge of life in prison and a fine of $1,000,000. As you can see, Michigan has extremely harsh penalties and fines for trafficking and distribution and if you are charged, you will need an attorney that is skilled in this area of the law and do whatever it takes to keep you out of prison.
What Should I Do Following My Arrest For Ecstasy?
The most important thing that you can do immediately following your arrest is to not talk to the police. Many people think they look guilty if they don’t talk to the authorities and request an attorney. Police are trained to make you talk, but you must remember that anything you say can and will be used against you. Nothing you say will get you to change their minds about the rest and all it can do is harm your case beyond repair. You can count on your statement being taken out of context and not reflecting the real meaning. For these reasons, make it clear that you are requesting an attorney and that you will not be talking until your legal representation arrives. You will be under extreme pressure and stress, but this is critical to the defense of your case.
