Why Is Heroin a Schedule I Drug?
Did you know that heroin is derived from morphine? As an opiate, heroin is considered to be especially dangerous. The overdose risk is extremely high, and the potential for addiction is equally severe. It is also believed to have no medical use. For these reasons, heroin has been classified as a Schedule I drug, along with LSD, marijuana, ecstasy, and peyote.
Heroin-related offenses that can result in fines and/or prison time include:
- Using heroin
- Failing a drug test
- Possession of heroin
- Selling or manufacturing heroin
- Distributing or trafficking heroin
- Selling heroin to a minor or near school property
The specific penalties for a conviction are dependent on the circumstances of your case. With this in mind, you want to retain a Michigan criminal defense attorney who has experience handling these specific kinds of cases. A lawyer will be able to explain the charges brought against you, investigate all aspects of your case, and guide you throughout the process.

Mr. Morris happened to be the second lawyer that I contacted. The first lawyer said he would take my case for a $10K retainer fee and that I had a long road ahead of me.
