Delivery of Cocaine Attorneys in Michigan
Dedicated to Helping You Get the Results You Need
If you are charged with delivery of a controlled substance, such as cocaine, you will be facing a felony charge according to Michigan law. Cocaine is classified as a schedule II drug, and the penalties for delivery are severe.
Schedule II drugs are considered to have a high potential for abuse and include drugs such as opium, cocaine, morphine, OxyContin, Adderall, and hydrocodone.
The potential for abuse is a critical factor in determining which schedule a drug is placed in, and a particular drug need not be listed in the schedules to be treated as a schedule II drug for criminal prosecution. If you are found with a drug that has a similar chemical makeup to cocaine, for example, the prosecutor will charge you with the delivery of a schedule II drug.
