What Are Methamphetamines?
Classified as a Schedule II drug, crystal meth is a synthetic drug that affects the central nervous system. It is part of the amphetamine category of drugs. Users of methamphetamine may inject, smoke, ingest, or snort the drug. An extremely addictive drug, meth is also associated with severe side effects such as paranoia, anxiety, depression, hallucinations, and heart attacks. Frequent users of mess also suffer from extreme deterioration of their teeth and gums.
Recently, the trafficking and use of methamphetamine in Michigan have increased, and much of the meth that is trafficked into the state comes from out of the country. Consequently, penalties upon conviction are severe and cases are prosecuted aggressively.
Common drug crimes associated with meth include:
- Use of methamphetamine
- Trafficking of methamphetamine
- Possession of methamphetamine
- Intent to manufacture methamphetamine
- Manufacturing and maintaining a meth lab
- Distribution and selling of methamphetamine
If you are being charged with a methamphetamine-related crime, it is likely that a raid will be made on your home or other property. This can also result in a forfeiture case being brought against you by the prosecution. This means that the prosecution seeks to seize ownership of your property and possessions. This can be overwhelming as it often ties up all of your assets, making securing a legal representative difficult. This is why it is best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after you have been arrested.
